  • My kids and I love coming here! The kids classes they offer are so fun and a great value. Love exploring and learning new things! The inside area is so fun for the kids as well, they love the bees!
  • This place I great. My son is 2 and we went with some friends. We walked the trail by the creek and went further up where we could see beautiful views of the meadows and mountains. In the actual visitor center there were interesting exhibits that were hands on. The kids were allowed to touch pretty much anything and explore. I think I appreciated that the most - the set up is geared to young learners so I'm not constantly whispering "don't touch that!" 😅 The workers are so friendly and informative as well. I would definitely go back. Apparently, we didn't even get to see all they have to offer.
