Editorial Review

More visitors center than nature center, this beautiful building does have some exhibits, books for kids to read and a nature video they can watch. A garden out front is planted to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

A tour guide describes the lake's history and wild inhabitants, such as beavers, muskrats, otters and various birds.
