I am telling you that they were all wrong - this place was much BETTER than the humble writings on this page. First, it is clean. very clean. Second, the staff greeted... More

We take the grandkids here often. It's a good, educational place to visit. The place is clean, and the exhibits are well maintained.

Nice, small museum. Professional displays. Very nice employees. We loved the 2 headed snake. Nice garden & walking trails. We did not go with children and still enjoyed it.

This was a very educational center. There were many interactive displays, fun for both children and adults. My favorite thing was the live two-headed snake. It was fascinating! There is also a large display window that looks out into the woods & the Nature Center has several bird feeders located so that you can watch all kinds of birds feed.

We went with my son's cub scout troop to a program all about birds. The conservation agent that gave the program did very well with 20 kids in the classroom. She taught them different ways to identify species, how to use binoculars, and then took them on a bird finding hike. The kids had a great time and the parents... More

We went to the Discovery Playhouse, Nature Center, & then the Lazy L Safari. This place was great. We spent about an hour here, it was free, and there were several free booklets that the kids got to take home with them. Really enjoyable.

We took our 5th grade classes to nature center last year and they all had a blast! They really enjoyed getting to explore the ponds and interact with the animals. The guides were very knowledgeable and were very patient with our kids and their thousands of questions. Looking forward to this year's trip!

Our younger family members loved all the interactive modules. This nature center encourages learning about nature and our area wildlife. And the best part is, it's free. Your kids will want to visit again and again.
