A fun and cooler walk in a hot summer day with the water and fish exhibit and other wildlife. Information is provided for the different exhibits.

A great space to take a beautiful walk and enjoy nature. Last time we were here, so many deer were walking the paths with us. Love it!

Our local friends introduced us to MK Nature Center on a crisp, autumn day! Their boys had fun showing off the river and forest; meeting fish, fowl and critters along the way. Great little hike with lots of spots for learning, perfect for adults and kids alike. What a unique Boise feature totally new to us!

While the main building has tours and fee based programs, it is just as nice to take the free stroll around the grounds. Beautiful gardens, the fish viewing areas, and the wild bird houses ensure lots of scenic opportunities under shady trees.

We spent a nice hour or so walking through the displays here. It is very much all about fish and waterways, though a doe and two fawns appeared in the parking lot for our pleasure. We found it mildly interesting

This was a nice treat to walk through their nature gardens, and then enjoy inside exhibits. Also, the back side opens on the river trail, and that looked like even more fun.

Like a mini zoo with picturesque bridges and neat aquariums, great signage. Small, but you can't beat the price. Since it stays "open" after most things in Boise have closed, it is a great way to end the day.

This is a great place to go to teach your children about the life cycle of the fish in the area and what goes into keeping the environment healthy. Very beautiful area and natural looking as possible.
