    Such a great place to go and learn...My neice Lily loves this place and we have been taking her here since she was 2 years old. She fell in love with Pearl a Stuffed Seal that was hurt. They were having a Garage Sale/ Fundraiser to help fix Pearl.Lily was so upset that pearl was hurt and cryed...Now she is 9 and is happy that pearl is ok and still here.

    Stopped by, but they were closed. They had a picnic table outside so we decided to eat lunch. The owner stopped by and gave me a little tour of the place! Didn't expect him to at all, but once he found out I've never been he seemed eager to show me. Most people aren't this nice. Will be stopping by at a later time to let my son explore and to support them at the gift store. :) thanks a bunch!

    Wonderful interpretive center and museum. They have tons of info and materials to check. In my first visit I was expecting to spend 30 minutes and it was way too short. Volunteers take care of it although I feel like a little high the fee to pay but it's worth a visit.
