Very clean and well kept! This place is wonderful to visit anytime of the year with flora and fauna changing with the seasons. Make sure to visit the Memorial on the other side of the building and honor our brave American soldiers.

This was always a fun place to go to when I was young and still is fun today. Very educational with a lot of hands on exhibits and real animal skins. Outside you can go fishing or hiking. A great place to take kids

Attended a fantastic class at the Conservation Nature Center! Very informative, well-presented, and a lot of fun. I'll definitely be signing up for more classes! The center itself is beautiful, and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.
