We always seem to discover new things at Green River Lake State Park. We checked out its visitor center last Sunday and came upon a mini nature center equipped with an aquarium, a bird-watching station, several turtle tanks and a snake tank along with some nature educational stations for kids. James enjoyed playing the fake, life-size boat in there. He called it a pirate boat.
It is indeed the most stimulating state park visitor centers we have been to so far. The planner of this visitor center is definitely more focused on educating people and children about animals and nature than trying to look rustic or be a tourist trap.
We took my Mom to the park for hanging out, picnicking and fishing. She enjoyed the beauty and the opportunity to practice her new passion, photography, there.
