Staff members are available year-round to answer questions and lead programs, including: field trips for students and other organized groups, outreach programs for schools and other organizations, public programs for audiences of all ages, scout programs, summer camps, and birthday parties for children. The nature center is open five days a week and contains hands-on educational exhibits; live animals; a Discovery Room with games, puzzles, and puppets for young children; a library; an observation bee hive, and a planetarium and observatory. The auditorium, meeting room, pavilion, and fire ring are available to rent for private meetings and parties. There are no fees or costs associated with general admission.
