  • This was more than I expected. The toddlers first did a craft in the basement and played with puppets. Then there were several indoor environments with natural and decorative displays. A nice fire wit...  more »

  • Great adventures for all ages! Or maybe you want to casually stroll through, this place is AMAZING!! Tour through greenhouses with hands-on activities to learn more about gardening and plants across the globe. See the carefully constructed railroad train and the village it passes through! Visit Turtle Hill where a bunch of turtles hang out. Walk down to the Butterfly Garden, a greenhouse full of vibrant colored flowers and tons of butterflies. Get a q-tip dipped in sugar to attract them to you and they'll sit right on your shirt if you want!! Let kids play on the wooden play area, take hikes through several trails and paths through meadows and woods. Be sure to check out their unique and lovely gift shop. Add yourself to their email list to get invited to many classes and events like teaching birds to handfeed, bonfires, child camps, crafty classes, there's always something so very cool happening here!! I love the landscaping, vegetable garden, everything about this place is incredibly amazing! And they keep adding more all the time!! A must visit place!
  • Nifty setup they have. Good people, spacious areas, lovely nature, and especially during the Christmas season - a wonderful holiday season with treats and several activities/things to look at.
  • This was our third trip here and I love it. The perfect combination of nature and whimsical.
  • Some of the nicest, most kindhearted people I have ever met! They have fun educational events throughout the year for children and adults. Spooky Science is amazing! I got to see an owl and bats up close and hold a cockroach! The Butterfly House is the best one I have ever been to because there is such a high concentration of butterflies and no one is ushering you through it - you can stay as long as you want! And the new caterpillar nursery is awesome. And the Amazing Science Plant Center is great too, as well as the gift shop with items made by local artisans. This nature preserve is an absolute hidden gem!
  • I love everything about Beech Creek. It's fun, educational, and beautiful. There's something for everyone. I've bought my plants here two years in a row, and they have done very well both years. Their events are always very enjoyable, and the people there are very friendly. It's easy to tell that a lot of thought and work goes into this place.
