What a great place for anyone who likes to be out in nature to go to. They also have educational classes and everyone is so informative. They also will work with small groups like scouts for badges

I visit here at least once a year, usually during spring. When new friends just move here, I recommend here if they are nature lovers especially with kids. The visitor center is pretty nice, you can find a lot of information there. I remember they provide event calendar once a month. Also, there is a room for birding, u'll see... More

Good for a spot for families who want to explore birding. There is a little store in the Wilderness Center with books, etc. Bring your binoculars, bug spray and a fat checkbook for children's books. Fees help run the center.. Hey! Do it for the kids and the birds.

This Center has done a super job of preserving some local land that might have otherwise been strip mined or turned into a landfill. They have a couple of lakes and streams with walking paths. A bit of up and down, but not too strenuous. Also a very nice Interpretive Building with meeting rooms, restrooms, gift shop and their offices.... More

We came back this year just to go Christmas shopping for our grandchildren in their store! Great selection of books and unique nature items that kids would love. The weather wasn't great so we didn't hit the trails this time. We'll be back!

Stopped here after seeing the sign each time we visit this area of the state. We didn't do any of the trails bc we forgot our baby stroller for our 2.5 yr old, but just the center inside itself was cool. We all enjoyed it and will return and do trails on our next visit to Amishland. Inside had a... More

Another gorgeous spot in the area - for learning, hiking, photos, and actually, just chilling out from the madness of the city.

I took my three little boys (under 6) and teenage niece for a spring hike. The trails were cleared and under 2 miles perfect for little feet and a phone attached teen. The nature center was amazing with lots of wonderful staff. A must see!

Great trail to walk. It is a distance, and you might need a walking stick because there is some uphill to it but it is so worth it. you might meet some geese along the way. a very nice pond. A couple of nice places to sit. Make sure you go in the building. they have a nice place to... More
