    Every time I visit, I walk away shaking my head and saying, "I didn't know that!" You should come by and spend some time, whether just a short while or an afternoon, it is so relaxing.  more »

    Worthwhile place to visit in Wichita Falls. If you want to learn about the local critters, go no further. They have a friendly staff of volunteers when were eager to show us around. The roadrunner and butterfly room were definitely highlights of the trip.

    My kids love coming to this place, learning about nature, plants and animals. Usually always an event going on. Definitely a good place to check out. They also have nature trails out back that you can take hikes through.
