So this place is really cool I don't think I've ever been here before maybe a long long time ago I don't know I didn't get to stay here for long because I arrived a half an hour before closing but the employees they were very friendly there was a loose turtle or tortoise roaming around they have an extensive fossil and gem stone exhibit, they also have an apiary which is a thing for bees, you should also make sure you ask about the salamanders

Very well run nature center with helpful staff and a small gift shop. Bird viewing area, plenty of displays, a hiking trail and kids library and game center round the place out nicely.
