If you have a Field Guide to the Birds, or any other Field Guide, you know of Roger Tory Peterson
Roger Tory Peterson grew up in Jamestown, roaming the fields and woods not far from here. Much of his works is being housed in the extensive library, along with changing exhibits and gift shop.

Absolutely gorgeous building. Original artwork. Amazing exhibits. Viewing spots and trails. If you are a birder or wildlife lover, you owe yourself a visit.

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.

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.
