  • Nice nature center with plenty of critters and indoor exhibits. A nice little gift shop too. Good nature trails for kids through woods and wetlands.
  • This place is a great place to learn about nature and to teach your children as well. The staff is very knowledgeable, helpful, and very friendly. The trails are a great way to relax and provide a wonderful view of nature.
  • Such a great treasure! Take time out of your busy schedule to spend some time in nature. Great trails, beautiful location, welcoming nature center with awesome educational opportunities for all ages.
  • DeGraaf Nature Center is a delight. The trails are well marked and there are signs along the way about what you are seeing as you walk by. I did the night hike and it was fun and the staff was helpful and quick to answer questions.
  • The inside is small but they have plenty of hands on items and small critters to see. The trail outside is an easy walk and you're sure to see some birds and squirrels along the way.
