  • The celery bog has beautiful trails with picturesque views of the unique ecosystem. If you need a break after your hike, the Lilly Nature Center is a fantastic resource for learning more about this area’s wildlife. It has learning tools accessible to children, such as a puppet show, Legos, natural specimens they can touch, a microscope, games such as chess, markers and coloring pages, and much more. There is also a cozy area for bird and squirrel watching. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. My students always love coming to the center to explore and extend their learning. Thank you for all you do!
  • Informative on local natural history, lots of interesting workshops, and a great bird-viewing window with speakers to hear them. The grounds are great for short hikes and nature observation. I would love to see some live animal displays like some nature centers, but otherwise, it's a nice place to visit.
