  • I have been using the Springfield Conservation Nature Center for years to walk for exercise and pleasure. I have hundreds of wildlife/nature photos taken around the property. It is an excellent place for kids young and old to meet nature. And, oh yes, the no pet rule for this type of educational area is important. Thank you to the excellent staff for making my visits a pleasure!
  • Great trails with lots to see! If you go at the right time you will see a lot. We saw squirrels, chipmunks, hawks, ravens and lots and LOTS of turtles. The trails are in good condition and pretty easy to traverse. Some of the rocks are slippery so watch for that. The inside is pretty nice too. It offers a nice reprieve from the heat in the summer. There are a few activities and displays to pass the time. Definitely family friendly.
  • If you have a dog you're wanting to take on trails, don't bother with the drive. I got to the poorly planned parking lot, where I was greeted by signs saying no pets are allowed. While the facility looked nice, I never got out of the car because my two dogs were with me. I understand them having to stay outside, but they aren't allowed anywhere on the property. I'm not very motivated to revisit when I could take my dogs somewhere else.
  • Beautiful day to hit the trails for some exercise!! Plenty of shade to keep it cooler and yesterday's rain was pretty as it flowed through the streams.
  • was really looking forward to visiting, but more than half the trails were closed because of flooding! won't be back to the area, so it was disappointing, but i really loved what we did get to see. nice interior exhibits also.
