“Very Nice Place To Visit”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is a stunning building when you walk up to it.
The art work and information inside is just great.
We were only there for about an hour, but could easily have made an afternoon of it.
They also have hiking trails for those who want to get out and about.

“Worth the Trip”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

The institute is a new facility that is quality educational and natural history center. It's ground are lovely, it's library is extensive and the art work in amazing. If you are a birder be sure to go, is you enjoy the art of nature by all means go, the grounds are very family and child friendly especially when there are educational programs being offered. When in the Jamestown area this definitely an activity that should not be missed.

“Birding and Natural Beauty”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

RTPI is a refuge for both birds and bird watchers, with nature trails and spotting scopes, birdfeeders and plantings that attract wildlife. A lovely respite with great artwork, a gift shop, and various lectures and nature authors presented year round. Good for school groups.
