  • This is a wonderful nature center with many trails, ponds, wildlife and farm animals, and there's no admission fee. The Center is so big that you can easily forget that you are still in the Twin Cities when you're walking. As I write this, Google Maps indicates the Center is closed, but that's misleading because we just walked there this morning. The buildings may be closed, but I think the trails are always open, even in winter. Highly recommended.
  • Nice place to learn about, and see the environment in the area.
