A great place to teach kids about nature. A fun little walk around the lake area. A true nature hike as all types of wildlife inhabit the area.
Awesome place to see some Rocky Mountain animals. There is a nice self guided trail and plenty of spots to take in the view along the way. Great for any occasion really:)
Beautiful 25 acre spot nestled in the forest, knowledgable naturalists, and a visit from a young black bear to top off the presentation!
Free, nice trails, not many native animals I thought there would be more
We had our wedding reception here on a rainy fall evening. The staff was so friendly, the space was super cozy, and all of our guests could not stop gushing over how beautiful everything was. Truly magical :)
