There ate beautiful tall trees and great trails. Some trails are very shaded and others through a meadow. Nice bookstore. Other opportunities and classes.

Hikes, displays, special events, the local holiday bazaar, picnic on the deck, see the owl and hawk in rehabilitation. Any time of the year.

The nature center is definitely off the beaten path and offers a quiet walking area. There is wildlife on display and specialty art fairs during the year as well.
