  • Very amazing place to visit. The trails and picnic areas are very well kept. I've been coming here for many years and I don't plan to stop. The butterfly thing is super cool. The bug exhibits are very educational. The animals are great. The staff is always helpful. I came here for school field trips when I was am elementary school goer. We removed invasive plants and got to learn so many things. The summer programs here are so amazing. The homestead is so cool, there is so much to learn there. The streams are super nice, sometimes there are water snakes. I liked to pick a leaf of jewel-weed when I was a kid and put it in the water to see the silver glare. I would absolutely recommend this place to absolutely anybody.
  • On an unusually chilly May day (we saw snow falling), we hesitantly decided to have our family outing at the KNC. I can't express how favorably impressed I am with this facility! The indoor center is fun for all ages and the hiking trails are well maintained. We had a wonderful time and hope to go again--hopefully in warmer temps!
  • I believe that Cathie and I were the first couple to get married here! 9-16-1967
  • Best nature center ever. Lots of hiking trails and friendly staff. Especially Dave Brown. He is pretty much the smartest naturalist ever. You should talk to Dave if you have ANY questions.
  • Well i went few years back and it was breathtaking. Really is one of the only places besides church where i can find my inner peace.
