  • There's always beautiful scenery to take in even when the wildlife isn't around. Critters in the aquaria are fun to watch.
  • its tucked away and you wouldn't really know it unless you saught it out. but when you come here, the folks running the experiments are really glad to see someone and are excited to share all they can with you. its a real nature place, and has wonderful activities for the kids too! besides, their puns all over the place are amazing. worth the trip!
  • I love this place. Dan is an enthusiastic educator. I hope a gift comes along soon to modernize this facility - it's an excellent place to learn about our Sound. Bring boots and plan your trip for low tide if you want the full experience.
  • Beautiful trails, easy hiking
  • Very Educational place for everyone.
