Swarms of mosquitoes attack from all directions. There are repellent resistant mosquitoes in such quantities that we did not last long there. September 2018. We did not observe any of the supposed wildlife at the nature center that were not in cages.

The nature center was a pleasant surprise for my husband and I. We toured the center on a Friday afternoon. We walked many of the beautiful trails. The trails are level and wide. Most trails were made of small gravel and there were some boardwalks....More
