The Reserve includes a nature center, butterfly house, observatory, youth camp, nature store, citizen science center, field research station and charter science research school. It provides programs, activities, and experiences to help people of all ages explore and discover the magic and mystery of the natural world. The Wise Nature Center is your starting point for exploring the reserve. Stop in, pay trail fees, rent equipment, grab a map, and check out the animal exhibits, observation deck, and nature store. The Observatory is open clear Saturday nights May – October, and for special programs throughout the year on the third Saturday of the month (except December) at 8 pm.
