My family and I absolutely love the nature center and the programs they offer. We go often and try to take part in the kids programs minimum, but we have also done some of the adult only offerings. Its very informational and fun!

Stopped by for a 3 mi hike as we left Anchorage on our way to Denali. Didn't see a lot of wildlife but it rained most of our hike. Trails maintained well, good directions, and the Guides at the center were very helpful!
