Nice, clean zoo with local animals and birds. Great for families, cute gift shop and educational programs.
We took the "behind the scenes tour". Kids had a great time. We really enjoyed the unique perspective of the animals. The WNC nature center is doing interesting Things.
I'm so proud of all the hard work that the local people are putting into the Western North Carolina Nature Center the expansion plans they have are awesome and I totally support them they are definitely worth visiting and supporting
We go everytime we visit Asheville. The kids love the petting farm.
Small, but nice. All native wildlife. The only thing lacking was shade over the picnic area.
