“inspires awe and awakens curiosity”
Managed by the USDA Forest Service, the 25,000 square-foot building includes the permanent exhibit hall, 158-seat theater, an education room for hands-on curriculum-based activities, and a retail store. The center is handicapped accessible and offers parking for tour buses and recreational vehicles. Only guide dogs for the visually-impaired are allowed in the building, so please leave your pets at home. Several trails offer outdoor recreation opportunities in plants native to the Northern Plains.
