Our school has been coming here for as long as I remember! Our kiddos love the calm atmosphere, awesome teachers and volunteers and educational programs. They are SO organized and hands on. This year ...we tried out the winter program and it was a hit! Can’t wait for next year. See More

Our 4th grade classes participate in a field trip to the WNC every year. The staff and volunteers are always so welcoming and do a fabulous job of planning a day that teaches the students a variety of... nature related facts through short presentations and hands on activities. I would highly recommend this location for your next field trip! See More

Love this place! We have had birthday parties there, gone to summer camps and family events. I really wish there were times the public could just visit more often!
