  • Cool place, definitely worth a stop, but don't go in expecting a ton. The animal exhibits are so-so and there isn't much to look at in the main building. The Treehouse is the highlight by far and it's worth the super fair admission price just to see it.
  • Brought some cub scouts. The staff was great, go during animal feeding time around lunch. Cool tree house too.
  • Great for kids. Outdoor trails, huge treehouse, stuffed and live animals, etc.
  • Very nice nature center with stuffed animals, some trails and a huge multi story treehouse!
  • Fun for kids and grown ups! A lovely escape into the cool woods on a hot day. The educational exhibits inside and out are thoughtful and the staff are very warm and engaging. Treetops exhibit is a must-see.
