Getting back to nature is what you will find here. A learning lessons for all ages as you will take in the history of the many land formations and wildlife creatures. The hiking/snowshoe trails are so relaxing so don't forget to bring a camera.

Lovely hike where you can walk your dog off leash. Just be aware of hunting season, so you can feel less exposed to people with guns!

This is a great little exhibit. It is no more then a half day activity that would be perfect to take the kids on a rainy day. Lots of interactive exhibits and very unique.
