  • This is a nice community wildlife rescue group - and they have wonderful trails. They have a number of owls and other birds that cannot be released - and they work with wild birds to rehab them - The trails are great for hiking with all ages - not to hard! - the children and you will enjoy the outdoor bird flights when you go in warmer weather. For the community they provide great educational programs for children - -
  • Small nature conservatory. Plenty of interaction for kids of all ages. Nighttime theater was excellent. Beautiful walking trails.
  • Dpnc is a wonderful part of our community. My children both have gone to the preschool and summer camps there. There's very accessible trails for hiking near the center, then some longer, more challenging trails.
  • Bring your children to an amazing nature reserve and hiking paradise. Great bird watching. And check out what Coogan farm is doing to save the world!
  • Museum, hiking nature trails, wildlife sanctuary and rehab for birds which you can interact with as well as after-school programs along with countless other fun family activities, what's not to love? It's right in the heart of Mystic as well so there's plenty of things to do when you are done.
