The nature trails are very well maintained. It is well worth stopping and visiting the nature center while it is still quaint and natural. Some of the trails have raised platforms so you must be steady on your feet even though handrails are provided. Our pups enjoyed the walk.

Went with my youngest son as part of a class field trip. It was interesting. We live close by so it was neat to learn about the plants and animals. However, if I lived far away and was trying to make a decision as to whether or not it was worth the trip, I'd have to say no. It was a neat experience, seeing it through the eyes of a child but you could get the same experience from a nature hike on a good trail in Florida.

It has been almost 2 years since I was here the last time. I did enjoy seeing some of the changes and their continued willingness to accept recommendations.for the center. I especially like the continued support by the Boy Scouts.

Thank you for noticing our improvements. We keep trying to get better and better. We rely on our members, volunteers and visitors to help steer us in the right direction.

And, we truly appreciate the efforts the Boy Scouts make at TLNC. We love our SCOUTS.

Took our grandson. Visited the nature museum of local habitat. Check out the gift store, had a very nice selection of nature media. We then went along the nature trail.
