“Special Experience”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

So impressed that Earthplace has 62 acres of open space and 2 miles of lovely walking trails. We loved seeing the birds of prey that are part of the permanent collection of injured birds. On the weekends it has a great playground for young children as well.

“An Island in the middle of the hustle”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

Kids love the animal rescue enclosures, the playground, and the great activities and displays in the main building. But the best regenerative thing you can do is take a nice little hike through the woods.

“A Great Environmental and Nature Center”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

The animals are well cared for, the volunteers knowledgeable, and the programs are excellent. My daughter's Girl Scout troop identified the trees on one of the trails, complete with markers and descriptions on the map.

“Nice, Small Nature Spot”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

The kids just beg to go back here...its close, has lots to do, and is easy for them to maneuver! Such a pretty setting and educational, too! What could be better than that?
