They have a 12 minute movie and exhibits on the history and culture of the area, wildlife exhibits, and information to help protect and promote our natural resources. Even the architecture of the building is interesting.

Friendly greeting as we walked in the door. Watched a 13 minute informative movie on the water shed. Beautiful map of the watershed in the flooring. As we left 2 young girls were getting their Jr Ranger badges. Highly recommend the stop.

This is a great stop even if just passing through. Lots of information on area inside. Have garden area but wasn't much to look at in October, probably very nice in spring and summer.
