Our love for nature runs deep.

"As a mom of three little boys and former teacher, going to the NLDC is like a breath of fresh air! My kids LOVE the nature playground. My older boys (students at North Lakeland School) adore Ms. Licia and all the incredible programming they get to do there through school. And, lest we forget to mention the new nature center! It is awesome. The "gopher holes" that they pop up their tiny heads into, the Eagle's Nest, all the turtles! They love the NLDC. I love it. Very grateful to have this resource in our own backyard!"
