  • This was really well done and entertained us for 1.5 hours, hard to do with a pair of 3 year olds. Docent at the observatory was highly informative and showed off all of the telescopes. The nature center had great exhibits and nice collection of living animals onsite. All in all a classy place that i didnt know about for some reason!
  • Super helpful and friendly staff, fascinating exhibits and live animals. Great place for families looking for a nice peaceful, fun activity. And as a bonus, people with valid SROA member cards get in free.
  • We took our little boy to learn all about the wild life and fauna around us. The birds of prey were out and about in large clean enclosures and on the staff's arms. We loved meeting the resident owls, hawks, and honey bees. Everyone was so knowledgeable.
  • The nature center here offers all kinds of informative, interactive workshops. I got to see a solar flare through a telescope during a sun has gazing session. They offer stargazing as well. The sun gazing was by donation only but the star gazing requires a fee. There is also a really nice outdoor path that's free to access. And, of course, they have several birds of prey and do talks about them from time to time.
  • A great place for kids. Free parking, learning exhibits, some owls and a short nature hike.
