“A wonderful nature experience for every age.. and it's free! ($3.50 for parking) Explore over five miles of nature trails through woodland, wetland, prairie and oak savanna on 220 acres of protected land in Whitnall Park. Step inside the Wehr Nature Center to meet resident reptiles, see an indoor beehive and active aquaponics displays and find a range of nature themed books, gifts and toys in the shop. Just outside the nature center you’ll discover labeled gardens featuring prairie, woodland and other plant varieties; a natural play space for kids with a log cabin playhouse; and an accessible deck over Mallard Lake. Wehr Nature Center also hosts nature-themed educational programming and special events year round.”
