It was a beautiful sunny day so the walk around the site was excellent. Saw some animals and flowers up close that had only seen from moving car on roads so it did give a good perspective on the local habitat. Would not go on a soft or rainy day as much of the ground is uneven and is wet... More

It has informative displays that would be very well suited to children. The trail around the building is a nice walk. Go up to the top of the hill... More
