We went to visit this place but unfortunately it was closed. The sign board displayed it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. I wish people would have mentioned it in their reviews. Would have spared us 50 miles of drive.

Great place to take your time and walk the trails. If you enjoy peace and quiet while taking in natures beauty, this is the place to go. Enjoy special educational talks that are present from time to time.

Overpriced walking trails, you can hike many other places for free. Other than a few bird feeders not much of nature center.

Not much to do, you can only watch birds for so long. Can take a walk but watch out for ticks.
