Wonderful nature walks, great educational programs, a "must see" for every city kid! They have programs from geocaching for all ages to worm composting. A great place for nature enthusiasts who live in the city.

“A great place for younger kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Lots of hands-on displays with good educational components. Lots of room for the kids to explore. Not so big that the kids get bored.
