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.

Very kind friendly. The tree house was cool. Also some of their animals were rescues so that was cool

Great nature center. The staff was nice and trusting of the visitors. Outdoorsy feeling to the main building. Recommended for any animal/trail lover.

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.
