We didn't actually go into the nature center but the Celery Bog Nature Area is a great place to hike. If you are into bird watching it's a good place to see all kinds of water fowl. We saw lots of wood ducks and all kinds of warblers.

Over the years I have been there on many occasions and for different programs and events. The trails are interesting, and the displays in the building are a tremendous help in understanding the ecology of the "Celery Bog".
