Friendly, educated, affable staff to answer all of your questions. The tree house built by the Ithaca high school is a must. Catch the butterfly garden as soon as it opens. The trails are great any time of year. The rescue animals are fun to watch and learn about anytime. Kids will always have fun.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. There aren't a lot to do especially in the winter time. Hopefully it gets better in the summer. Not many animals around. The indoor space smells bad. Toys in the playroom are fun but quite old and a bit dirty.

Small nature center just north of Ithaca near the shore of Cayuga Lake. Educational exhibits with live native and exotic animals. Small hiking trail leads to Denison Falls and 6 story tree house great for kids to climb.

The tree house is amazing and I love the animals. Inside is not that great but it definitely worth going for the trail, tree house, animals and view.

Great place with live animals and a kids room with a mini library and learning toys. Great staff.
