The information center was very cool. On Saturday they had several events Orchid Tour, Snake Show and a guided tour of the Cranberry Glades. The restrooms were clean and there was an interesting exhibit of local wildlife and a nice giftshop.

I lived near this attraction for the first 20 years of my life. I have memories of picnics and nature walks with my grandparents when I was young. I have moved further away but still travel by the center to visit family. My daughters and I always stop to see the sights and watch Mr. Moose with the snakes. On one of our last visits we took the tour with Mr. Moose through the glades. Plenty of beautiful plants and birds to see. He is very informative about the area and I am looking forward to stopping again on our next trip through. The people at the center are very friendly and the area is very scenic.

Lots to see in this small museum--it was nice to see this center in the middle of the wilderness area.
