For an up-close raptor encounter, come to one of our free bird of prey presentations at 11:30 AM every Saturday and Sunday!

Came to Coyote Grille with a group of friends. Food was great. Fish and chips were amazing. French fries were fresh cut and not out of a bag like most restaurants. Friendly server. Beautiful scenery.

Small area, but nice for a quick something to do. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Just across from the Nature center there is a cafe situated next to the Arkansas river for refreshments and a short hiking trail in the area.
