Nestled along the banks of Paint Creek, the popular nature center features family activities such as Friday night campfires and holiday-themed events as well as preschool classes during the school year, big kid adventures during the summer and a picturesque network of trails for everyone all year long.
The center is supported by memberships, donations, grants and also through fund-raising events. Volunteer opportunities are plentiful.
Where did its name come from? Wander along Dinosaur Trail, near the entrance to the nature center, and notice the hill that resembles a long-necked dinosaur.
