Kids of all ages will enjoy the trails and information about the flora & fauna seen here. The naturalists are interesting and appear to enjoy educating visitors in the various programs offered.

The paths take you into the marsh. Lot's of great programs. Hair gets sticky but shouldn't miss the maple sugar demos in March.
