Visitor Policies

Please do only walk along the wood-chipped trails.  In this way, you can respect the ecological-sensitive fauna and flora.  If you can walk and speak quietly, then listen and hear much more wildlife.

Decomposed granite trails meander throughout the campus and demonstration garden area.

Gathering areas for seating are interspersed through the nature center.  Picnic lunching is prohibited.
