Stopped briefly to see the building and view the wetlands from the top floor deck. Still looked like winter but the red-winged blackbirds were singing. Lots of exhibits inside and information about the local ecology and energy saving measures to use at home.

What a wonderful organization. Miles of trails to hike or ski. Our group enjoyed a wonderful snowshoe tour and our guide, Hunter, couldn't have been more enthusiastic or knowledgable. From learning about the history of this great wetlands preserve to chasing animal tracks, I thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

The 3rd floor is cool for viewing Elk and other creatures off in the distance. Especially fun for our kids was the indoor rock wall.

We went to the Swaner Preserve to learn more about the area and were treated to a wonderful photography exhibit.

So a Perserve located where it is in Park City seemed a little odd but after going it was a nice little place to visit. The kids had fun went on a short little walk into the wetland. We got a brochure to go over while on the walk, wished it had a little more information about the area but... More

Swaner does an owl prowl where an owl expert, Dr.Dave Oleyar, came to explain all about owls. He brought Artemis, a western screech owl, for show. Dave was incredibly knowledge and funny. After the interactive discussion we took a short drive to the foothills where Dave would play owl calls to lure owls closer to us or at least we... More

Did not know what to expect. Found the center wonderfully informative and interactive and the staff excited to tell you about their purpose. Kudos to the Swaner family.

Was getting a few geocaches in the area and didn't really know about this place. But the views of the open expanses are lovely.

I went here on a day the EcoCenter was closed, but that didn't stop me from taking a walk on the paved path and extending my walk under Highway 80 and up the hill on the north side. My husband and I were primarily bird watching and we were not disappointed. There were nesting swallows on the fence, a pair... More
