  • I have visited the nature center several times and it is a beautiful setting. It is a great place to take children to get back to nature or just take a walk on a nice day.  more »
  • I went for the maple syrup making event. I was able to view the entire process, from tapping the trees to eating the syrup.  more »
  • A nice large center, with lots of acreage around it for natural beauty as well. Plenty of parking it's set up nicely for both kids and adults too.  more »

  • This is my favorite place to hike in the area. The forest is dense and varied, from elm copses to the gorgeous pine stands that house the growing woodpecker population here, and prairie as well. The walk never gets old. There's also plenty for the casual forager to find, without having to worry about pollution from runoff, as most of the terrain is above the level of the river and surrounding countryside. There's tons of wildlife here as well. Every time I go out, I always run into deer, rabbits, and more. Many of the deer trails out here are so well defined you can take them in lieu of the marked path and still find your way back easily. Every time I come out here I see something new!
  • Beautiful new nature center, great programs, very nice volunteers! Fun 'natural' play area outside for kids. Some nice paths to hike. I've taken only a couple of the trails - one prairie trail was made of several smaller loops - easy walking, and another 'hill/forest' trail - slightly more difficult, but not very strenuous and beautiful and peaceful.
  • Great day park. Super welcome center. Be prepared to walk, as parking is not close to the building.
  • The new building is beautiful! We attended a boy scout workshop about rocks and minerals. The staff was well informed and really took their time explaining things to the boys. They even had some hands on experiments for them to try. Can't wait to get back out there and see what else they have to offer.
  • So many amazing activities for anyone, just check out their website, a hidden gem right here in Cedar Rapids
