There is a great walking trail here with a couple different ways to go and educational stops along the way that describe the local animals you may see and the trees and plants. In the museum and education center there are many displays and activities...More

Out of the way and hidden. Well worth finding. Location on the back side of Craighead Forest Park. Really unique, cool displays and the history of Crowley's ridge. The displays show the local wildlife. Perfect place to spend a couple of hours.

One of the best ways that I have found to continue exercising beyond 60, is to the find a friend with whom you share common interests and take a brisk walk while catching up on current issues. There is not a safer, more relaxing place...More

My family loves the Nature Center. Each time you go, there is something new. We like to be able to walk outside and also enjoy going to the top floor and looking at Crowley's Ridge.

Great place to walk for exercise all while learning about nature! You can watch the nature learn about plants, birds, trees, and animals. They also have crafts in the building sometimes after you take your walk.

If you are a nature lover, or have children that are, this is the place to visit to learn more about the flora and fauna of Arkansas and its surrounding areas. The displays are well done, and hunting education classes also are hosted here regularly.

We live close to the Nature Center so we take our grandchildren there often. They love all the things to do, and see. It is fixed up very nice, also very educational.

Our son loves to walk the trails. We go and watch the movie and then look at the tanks with the critters. Afterwards a walk on the short trails. On a cool day we will walk the longer trails.

While inside the Nature Center, be sure to see the two movies that run back to back on the half hours! The multi media movies were informative, well produced and entertaining, and the auditorium was large and comfortable, but a bit cool and windy so...More
