Fodor's Review

Naturalists are on hand in the interpretive center at this three-story cypress structure, which overlooks a 42-acre park of natural forest. Discovery boxes help children get to know the wildflowers, birds, and other outdoorsy things they'll see on the 3-mile nature trail. Free guided tours are offered on weekends by request. Make reservations for a guided evening hike on the last Saturday of the month ($3 per person).
