Grab the kids, a water bottle and some comfy shoes and spend the day exploring nature. The Nature Center is home to many animals. Visit our hawk, owls and vultures in our birds of prey compound. Visit one of the largest reptile exhibits in the state. See our cute Egyptian fruit bats. Take the kids down to the pond to feed the fish and then over to the bog garden to see the carnivorous plants up close. Finish with a hike out to one of the waterfalls and a picnic.
