I have visited the nature center several times and it is a beautiful setting. It is a great place to take children to get back to nature or just take a walk on a nice day.

The beehive behind glass was fascinating, as was the huge, very very long root system of the prairie plant exhibit. Excellent shop with unusual, hard-to-find gifts, useful items and books.

Miles of nature and a flat manicured trail. Enjoyed hours of walking, partially along a creek. Lots of critters along the way including butterflies, turtles, and even a baby Garder snake.
