Even on rainy day...you can spend anywhere from 15 mins to an hour at the nature center house, coloring and doing small projects, exploring local wildlife in aquariums and through pictures & books and hands on experiences with the nature items. I can't wait to go back on a sunny day and explore outside!

This is a small venue with many exciting nature adventures for the little ones. We just dropped in one day and got to feed the turtles, spray water on the frogs, watch the Osprey cam and take a walk outside and see a huge snapping turtle!

As the first visitors of the day, our 4 grandchildren got to feed the turtles as she talked about them. There were nice displays inside and crafts. The kids loaded... More

After spending many days on the beach this Nature Center was a great way to spend a few morning hours with the kids. The woman who worked at the center was warm, inviting, and helpful in getting the kids outdoors to explore nature. The kids loved the scavenger hunt and the adults really enjoyed the nice walk down the groomed... More

We spent about an hour here during our vacation when rain was on the way, and we didn't want to sit on the beach. The nature center has nets and binoculars for kids that make them feel like little explorers, there's a trail into the marsh, and a small playground.
