Nature Center: Hike, Nature Education, Walk
The Center provides on-site and outreach environmental education programs for schools and the general public and includes an interpretative center and trail system. The outdoor portion of the Center consists of a 52 acre riparian wetland with some upland habitat and agricultural remnants. There are two trails that traverse the site, a short loop, great for younger kids, that takes about a half hour to hike at moderate pace. There is also a longer loop that is less developed. The trails are cleared and have boardwalks in place at two locations.
