We found Tibet-Butler Preserve listed and rated on Trip Advisor and decided that this was another pure local attraction that we had to hit.

This is a nature preserve with nice paths and wildlife. I saw a hawk fly out of the brush holding a snake a few weeks ago! There is an information center with displays, and planned activities for kids. The various trails intersect so you can...More
