Great place to walk for exercise all while learning about nature! You can watch the nature learn about plants, birds, trees, and animals. They also have crafts in the building sometimes after you take your walk.

If you are a nature lover, or have children that are, this is the place to visit to learn more about the flora and fauna of Arkansas and its surrounding areas. The displays are well done, and hunting education classes also are hosted here regularly.

We live close to the Nature Center so we take our grandchildren there often. They love all the things to do, and see. It is fixed up very nice, also very educational.

Our son loves to walk the trails. We go and watch the movie and then look at the tanks with the critters. Afterwards a walk on the short trails. On a cool day we will walk the longer trails.

Was a great, free outing on the weekend. Place looked like it was getting run down some. Half of the exhibits didn't work and pretty trashy out in the water. Sad for a nature center.

I have visited every Nature center in the state of Arkansas and, in my opinion, this is the best. They have two films to watch, live snakes and other animals, Nature trails, a native plant garden, many activities available and walking trails that lead to...More

I really do not know about weddings at the Nature Center, so I would recommend that you call them. They can no doubt answer your questions; all I can say is that would be a really cool place to have a wedding, if you can... More
