Trip Advisor Loved this place.

Great place for 1-2 hours. They had some turtles, snakes and spiders. Very good naturalists that can answer all your questions. They even helped us identify a snake we had in our yard and photographed. Our kids were asked if they wanted to help feed the turtles! Great adventure. On our swamp walk We saw snake, raccoon foot prints and fox foot prints. The cypress trees are amazing, tall and majestic.

Trip Advisor The Wonders of Nature

Sort of off the beaten path, but what a jewel to treasure when you get there. To see the cypress tree in its natural habitat and learn of its growth cycle was quite fascinating. I was also impressed with the tremendous amount of information about other animal species in the swamp. The solitude and beauty alone should make this a place for all to see.

Trip Advisor A true gem!

We stopped here on a day trip to the area. It was really cold, so we were looking for things to do with our 4 year old and 5 month old indoors. We had an amazing experience! We just happened to be there on the day that they were feeding their large albino snapping turtle. Wow! Loved the beehive and the owl. My daughter enjoyed all of the hands on items. We also decided to brave the weather and do the swamp walk which is really nice. I would love to go back in warmer weather!

Trip Advisor Very Nice Hike and Nature Trail

Came by here while in Solomons and this is a great place to stop. The young lady in the nature center was excellent. She let our kids help feed the turtles and brought over a scavenger hunt for the kids to work on. The hike along the boardwalk trail was much fun and the kids had a great time looking for the various animals that could be found. The bugs were not too bad, and just some bug spray on and around your legs should be sufficient. When you are in the area make sure you stop by here.

We went on a field trip for my son's preschool class. We were supposed to do stuff outside but due to the weather we had to stay inside and they did a wonderful job with the kids keeping them entertaining. The girl running the program was really good with getting the kids involved. Would absolutely go back!
