  • Excellent nature center with surprisingly extensive hiking trails despite be located close to the City of Kalamazoo and not on public lands. The Kalamazoo river is particularly nice. Great spot for kids especially.
  • Great place near Kalamazoo to go hiking and feel far removed from civilization.
  • i went with the intention of getting a membership for everyone in the family but after deciding to check it out first i regretted even paying the entry for all. A lot of exhibits were empty, no educational or fun things for kids, trails were ok, staff was busy with each other all over the place.
  • 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.
  • Fantastic family place- walking trails, a nice path through a tunnel to ovelook the Kalamazoo river, nature center with indoor exhibits, fish tanks, and recovering big birds-owls and hawks.
