Come out to the Science center, whether you are young or old, and learn something new! Remember your childhood, and bring along some kids, so you don't feel left out of the crafts projects!

Leslie S&NC is a nice place to hold a kids birthday party. We have had our own kids parties here, and attended several others. The children (approx 4-7yrs) always enjoy themselves. The different themed parties can sometimes feel very similar, but they are still enjoyable. You also get the benefit of an indoor venue plus some outdoor fun. Guides are... More

I went here when the main part of the center was closed, but you can still walk around outside and see the raptors in their cages. The center has done some great work rescuing many different birds of prey, including eagles, falcons, and owls. The signs outside their cages give you a lot of information about the bird species, the... More

Wonder raptor exhibits with knowledgeable staff and excellent age based programs. There camps are educational and interactive. The kids are learning and come home exhausted after great day. I would give this place 10 stars if I could!

My daughter loves this place! The staff is outstanding as well. I tried to get a last min birthday party...completely my fault! Katie, office manager, tried to accommodate us. Again my fault! I send a HUGE thank you to her for trying and making suggestions! We will still be there on our own and return many times!

Great place to take your kids, or for a school or scout field trip. I've been several times with my kids schools, and also for a kid's birthday party. Beautiful trails for hiking, informative displays and the staff is fantastic.

My preschool are kids love this place. Just enough to see with the raptors and critter house then we hike so no boredom from them. The best part is the cost and open all year.

If you are looking for nature and quiet place to walk, if you want an educational experience learning about the flora and fauna of Michigan, this is a great place. The Critter House was recently renovated and houses a variety of snakes, turtles, a giant iguana and bunny rabbits. The birds of prey are awesome and inspiring.

A disappointment while under construction. This is a fun place to visit with children, but wait a while. Good place to learn about science and nature.
