The new building and grounds, called quite aptly "Amazing Space" are a great natural getaway from the city, so close yet so far. The building itself is an attraction, if you are any kind of a sustainable, off the grid kind of person it is a must see. Kids will love a visit, there will be no problem getting them... More

Very good kids trip to see nature and learn some about nature. It has many new changes in 2016 that are worth seeing about environmentally friendly power sources.

The beehive behind glass was fascinating, as was the huge, very very long root system of the prairie plant exhibit. Excellent shop with unusual, hard-to-find gifts, useful items and books.

Miles of nature and a flat manicured trail. Enjoyed hours of walking, partially along a creek. Lots of critters along the way including butterflies, turtles, and even a baby Garder snake.

It is a good place for walk. In my opinion it was look very unattended. The office was close as the store too. No sings to explain what was around. But anyway we walk around and play with some things that where there and we had a fun time.

We stopped in on a first time visit and was very pleased with the visit. It is a very nice, quiet and fun place to take a stoll through the local woods and trails. make it a place to stop in and visit during your time here.

Nice, local place with many events throughout year where you and kids can learn a lot. New headquarters building/learning center coming soon. Sac and Fox trail runs to/through property. Worth a visit for family/kids. "Paddle Day" event with presentations by experts on paddle sports a hit/fun for us. Maple syrup making event fun.

The trail I am most familiar is along the Cedar River at the Otis Road trailhead. Plenty of parking here but be aware of... More
