“Fun For Families”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The KNC offers a lot of outdoor walking trails, a farm to explore, a discovery center and lots of special programming. We have a membership because it is a great place to go on short walks, long picnics, special activities and camps for my daughter. My daughter just loves going to camp here and I really like that it gets her outside and active :).

“Nice trails”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

If the weather is good, this is a pleasant place to take a stroll. The visitors center is okay, but could stand a little upgrading. There are special programs that are often worth attending, as well as programs throughout the year that are interesting and fun. For example maple-sugaring in the sugar shack in the spring.

This nature center is in a beautiful setting with multiple indoor and outdoor activities. The surrounding trails are beautiful and well maintained. Children's programming is well planned and entertaining for children giving them a love of nature and all it has to offer. Definitely worth the visit.

“Pioneering and Innovative”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

KNC has hundreds of acres of diverse habitat, an excellent museum with lots of interactive things that fascinate kids, a Community Supported Agriculture Farm with animals that can be visited, musical programming in the summer and many community outreach activities. We have taken many out of town guests and families there and it always pleases
