Great place to visit with kids. It offers indoor discovery and outdoor play. Loved the zipline! It also has a wonderful raptor exhibit with Bald Eagles, hawks, and owls. It also offers a nice trail... more »
Beautiful grounds with many neat trails to explore. Even areas for children to play and explore. Birds of prey building was our favorite part. The bald eagle greeted us with some lovely vocals. The main visitor center had lots of interesting taxidermy mounts and great visuals. We didn't fish in the ponds but did see bluegills. We would recommend this place and will be visiting there again.
The outdoor discovery center is home to the Little Hawks Outdoor Preschool. It's an amazing environment for children to explore and learn outside in a beautiful, inspiring, educationally challenging setting. Excellent!
