  • A little late in posting, but loved the Creekside concert we attended at the Nature Center in August. The amphitheater is a beautiful setting nestled in the woods. The seating is tiered and makes for ...  more »
  • A wide variety of trails for different levels. We did a woodland and a prairie hike. Would be a great place to take the kids. The bird Library was so peaceful.  more »

  • My kids loved the sand table that showed how water would follow in real-time. We also attended a nice presentation on raptors from raptorologists too, plus they were doing a controlled burn off the brush outside so we were able to see how they control the flames and drive through the smoke! Big day for my kids at the nature center!
  • Attended the 2018 Maple Syrup Festival at the Indian Creek Nature Center. Fabulous pancakes and sausage but the real star is the hand made maple syrup and the volunteers that make it all happen. The ICNC is a wonderful local resource for Cedar Rapids and surrounding community. Check them out when you can b/c you are in for a real treat.
  • What a wonderful family Nature Center! I have taken my family and friends many times. Today was the annual Maple Fest. Great information. Delicious pankakes and sausage with Indian Creeks own maple syrup. The live intertainment was fun to listen to. I visited the visitors gift shop and even bought my first membership. There are so many events throughout the year. I love it!
  • Went to the maple syrup educational tour. All the kids there loved it. Even got to taste some syrup over ice cream at the end. Great outdoor activity for the littles!
  • Amazing center, wonderful maple syrup and I can't wait to try the maple beer that was offered this year! Or the maple ice cream! 💖
