The Nature Trail is always open and is an easy loop. The trail is used during our school programs, so if you plan to come during a week day morning, please call ahead.

Can I bring my dog? Dogs are wonderful animals that give comfort and companionship. However, the nature center is not the best place for them. Dogs chase, scare and can transmit diseases to wild animals such as nesting birds or mammals. Dogs leave behind a "predator" scent typical of all wild canines like wolves and coyotes. This scent can linger in the area for long periods of time and can disrupt or alter the behavior of the native animals the nature center has been set aside to protect and teach about.
Dogs are not permitted on trail except for service dogs.
