Great program about Raptors. Very informative and interactive. The trails are easy for 7 year old to 65 year old with a bum knee.

Nice plantings around the education center. Stuffed wildlife inside, mounted insects, educational camp or program for the children. A couple of damns taken out and habitat restoration in progress. Trails going north and south.
