this place isn't really large but there was a lot of interesting information to learn and very well done displays showing animals and nature. The nature walk was very beautiful with a large variety of birds, fish and flowers to look at.

Nice spot for a leisurely stroll. The Visitor's Center contains a number of exhibits, but the highlight is the walking path outside. There is a sizable lagoon and an outdoor aquarium where fish can be viewed through glass.
