You can walk through the woods (actually, Busey Woods) or look through the displays. It's a pleasant place to go and family friendly.

I walked through the wooden boardwalk, across from the cemetery. It was a quiet, peaceful fall day. Nice place.

So nice to see art work which is constantly changing with the seasons in the hallway.
Lots of stuff to look at in the Gift Shop and in the discovery museum room.
Turtles, snakes, a couple of owls.
A great bird viewing room with microphone when it is cold.

The nature center is adjacent to Crystal Lake Park, and to Busey Woods. The center itself is not much to write home about, although they do have a small gift shop and offer restrooms if you're going for a hike during their business hours. They also host meetings and classes, which makes the place a valuable community asset.

Ok its winter, but its quiet and you can get a nice day out walking through the woods at the back of the nature center.
Also check out the glass cases around the walls inside, snkes and other things to look at.
Great meeting rooms you can hire also.
All in all a hidden gem in Urbana!!
