Surrounded by forests, meadows, over five miles of nature trails and a .75-mile paved loop, this nature center is set on the banks of the Red Cedar River. View the river from an overlook deck or watch the hawk exhibit and play in the Nature Exploration Area. Inside the building are displays and live turtles. Programs for adults, children and families are available year round. There is access to the river via a canoe dock and the walking trails are open daily dawn to dusk.

A great option to explore during down time between sports events.
