I took my kids here. There is a time designated for feeding the animals, during which they capture the children's (and adult's) interest quite well. Also, we enjoyed the 1/2 mile paved walking trail behind the nature center. It looks like there is an outdoor classroom on the trail, which might be used to give classes, which is very nice.

A great place to take elementary aged children. My first grader loved it. I was told Fridays at around 2-3 was snake feedings. Lots of hands on things for kids to do.

This is such a wonderful place for the whole family to stretch their legs and just enjoy nature. The activity/nature center is great. Definitely worth a visit!

I love this place. Great for hikes and a fun nature center that my kids love. They also offer a bunch of classes. Staff is always willing to help and answer questions.

We love it here. It's so fun for kids and adults. Very nice trails. We like coming on Saturdays to watch them feed the animals.
