“Beauty and butterflies”

Sarett Nature Center
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We had personal attention from the director emeritus who spent time showing us snakes, salamanders, frogs, and butterflies. He had so much knowledge and we felt really lucky to have had this experience with him as our guide. The walking paths are also beautiful!

There are lots of trails, fun for x-country skiing, and the environmental center is really fun. I have never been there in the summer, so I can't say if it is buggy or not.

While traveling, we came across the Sarett Nature Center. The admission fee is only $3 (additional fee for butterfly house). The property is beautiful, walking trails, water, treehouse spot make you feel like you are up in the tree tops, visitor center is interesting with helpful staff. Nice spot for a visit.

Don't miss this gem...
Nature trails are not bug spray optional, buy good repellent and use it, its worth the effort.

A bit of a drive, but worth it. Sarett Nature Center is located near Exit-1 on I-196 in Benton Township. On our first visit we enjoyed only a mere fraction of what's available. However, we did visit the Butterfly House and a short walk out to the Treetop Platform. The Butterfly House did not disappoint. It is a mesh affair with dozens of types of butterflies - so many so that you need to watch your step. They provide you with a chart to identify these beautiful insects. The short hike into the woods took us out to the Treetop Platform - a raised affair that takes you out over a ravine, so that at its end you are 60-ft above ground. It's a might scary out there. The Nature Center itself has a gift shop with all sorts of nature books, classrooms, various viewing areas for watching birds and critters, etc. We joined via the family plan and intend to visit often to take advantage of the more extensive hiking trails.
