Fun experience with wild animals and interactive exhibits. The animals are local wild species and fun to see up close and the information on them is presented in an engaging way for children. The walk around the loop can take a few hours depending on how long you spend at each stop but it's an enjoyable time and a great place for families.

We went on their pontoon boat Squam Lake tour. It is a 90 minute tour, and is quite enjoyable. This lake has lots of water fowl, including lions, cormorants and eagles. It was also used for the filming of "On Golden Pond". The guide was very knowledgeable. The only downside was that the nature center was hard for us to find. Their are signs, but they are small, hard to see from a moving car. Google maps took us to the wrong place using the street address. But, I would definitely go again.

My 7 year old was engaged and excited the entire time we spent walking through the exhibits, which were truly so beautifully and respectfully done. It was clear how much care, thought and love had gone into preparing an engaging educational experience for young kids that was entirely unique. It was exciting to watch my daughter soak it all in and thoroughly enjoy learning so much about science and nature. So grateful we happened upon this place.

Very friendly staff, a nicely shaded walk and the exhibits were well spaced apart. Very kid friendly with a cool playground for the kids halfway thru the walk. Staff were out here and there with live falcons, owls and raptors for showing and were very informative and friendly to questions. The pathway throughout the "hike" was stroller friendly and although you "could" use a wheelchair as well, I do suggest having someone available to help push your chair or supervise your visit in a chair (there are boardwalks and lots of up/down hill.) Overall, a very pleasant trip! Even in 90F heat, the path was shaded with plenty of restrooms available.
