Also my 4yr old went there with his class for a free class session to learn about frogs, turtles and snakes. In a good weather you venture outside and walk the trails and go to the... More

There are lots options for hiking here, from flat ones to steep paths and steps. Dogs are allowed on trails and they are even welcomed in the visitor center, where they are given a treat. The visitor center has lots of displays for children. We sat for a while and watched the bee hive and bird feeders outside the Windows.... More

This is a fantastic place to visit - the visitors center has great displays and options for kids to explore nature inside the building. Short hiking trails take you around a pond and into the woods to see wildlife. Good for all ages.
