  • This small little nature center has a lot of events that you can come check out. If you are just passing by, they have a small museum full of information of the animals that live here and that you may encounter. It has activities for little kids to do there and a small movie theater to watch information of the bears around the area. The little hiking area around the nature center is also quite an enjoyable experience. It is a great place for hiking beginners and people who just want to relax.
  • Loved this place when my son was tiny. Now that he is older we still enjoy hiking here. For preschoolers they have great programs and even school age kids have field trips to this beautiful park. Lots to see and discover here, they are very helpful folks and annually host a teddy bear picnic. We have even seen a hummingbird's nest here once. You never know what you will find once you walk out your door........
  • Always a lovely nature adventure. A hidden gem.
