We loved it here. We spent 2 hrs and we didnt even walk the trails! Our 6 year old read every single word on the nature trail! He really enjoyed the bobcat, mountain lion and otters but his favorite was the bears! I wish we had packed a lunch. We only had some water and apples. We would have liked to explore the trails that were open. Just another reason to return!
Visited with my significant other on May 9th. Was not busy at all! Has so many interactive exhibits to learn from. Though we are both adults, we enjoyed playing and reading all the information along the trail. Love the hands on learning, it's the perfect place for children to learn new things about animals and nature while having tons of fun (and seeing animals!). The animals looked happy, and the enclosures were very natural and large for them to roam around. Will definitely return in the future!
This nature preserve is one or the most important places in the State, or the country. Inventive, entertaining exhibits are sprinkled liberally in between live wild animals (all rescues that would otherwise die or fair poorly). Plenty of playground installations for the Rugrats to wear themselves out on. Every parent who can must take their children as often as possible so that the messages about nature and the environment have a chance to get across and be heard and understood. There are dozens of nature and wildlife live presentations every week. This is truly a national treasure.
All three generations of our family enjoyed the whole place! It is so well thought out and put together. I figured our young kids would be most interested in the real live animals, but all the educational exhibits were so well thought out and interactive, the kids actually spent more time learning from the exhibits then watching the animals in front of them. That's how engaging and well done they were! Beautiful place as well, and so nice and shaded for an easy walk for all. The natural playground in the middle was thoroughly enjoyed and well placed to get some energy out midway through the learning path. I highly recommend this place.
Loved this place when I was seven and love it still. It's only gotten better, while keeping a lot of the charming natural interactive pieces that I remember. Even now I had a lot of TIL moments. We went when it was raining so it was pretty quiet, and all of the animal enclosures have covered areas so we didn't even get too wet. Animals looked healthy and calm as well.
