Like all the information available about wildlife and nature in Iowa prairies through time. Summer really buggy. Need to sell insect repellent in gift shop, otherwise you better bring your own. It is in a wetland area.

Beautiful time to go for a stroll when the leaves are changing colors. Fall is a great time to visit the Indian Creek Nature center, with awesome trails and gift shop you can't go wrong with a visit here.

Considering that this is just outside of Cedar Rapids proper, this is one of my "always go back to haunts". I can spend time out there and really feel like getting back to nature. It also helps that there are trails out there....for bicyclists too!! It's easy to get to, has ample parking, and they do still have some nice... More

CR is lucky to have the Nature Center. It's serene, informative, and one of my favorite things in the county.

The Nature Center is worth a day or at least half a day of exploration. The trails are great and you can also sign up for a variety of classes and events. We volunteer for the Maple Syrup Festival each March, Nature's Noel on the first Saturday of December and the plant sale in the spring. We meet interesting people... More

Stopped to check out the nature center before spring really got going. We checked out the nature center and were standing on the deck viewing the scenery. The gal in charged came up the stairs to the deck and asked if we had any questions. Of course we always do and Jean proceeded to guide us to viewing some early... More

This is one of my favorite places to walk and look at nature. I've come here for the maple Syrup celebrations, but nothing is better than quiet of the trails. It's close to home, and what a relief to get away and get some exercise while seeing some of the neatest birds and nature. Love the paths and bridges-great place... More
