Visiting With Children

The Wild Center was created with families in mind. From the hands-on exhibits that play music, let you hang out in a spiders web, make clouds, blow snow or mimic a walk on a bog to the live animals and boxes of activities in the sun-filled Naturalists Cabinet, the Center invites inquisitive explorers.
