Their aviaries are outside and the birds can be observed from the trails near the parking lot. See below for our Trail Map.

Visitor Center

Although our Visitor Center is temporarily closed, our Trails & Grounds remain open!

The Visitor Center, which opened in 1999, houses program registration, the Nature Gift Shop, animal exhibits, and the Sturgess Room where we feature the work of local artists and hold many events.

The Administrative offices are located on the second floor of the building.

Although the Visitor Center is not currently open to the public, we welcome you to continue to enjoy Craft Wednesday from the comfort of your own home.
