Environmental Discovery Center

The Environmental Discovery Center (EDC) features interactive exhibits, informative displays, and provides educational programming. The EDC and attached canopy walk is designed to bring visitors to the tree tops of the 676-acre park. Visitors to the center will gain an understanding of the ecosystems in the park from the view of the worm in the ground, to the bird's eye view in the top of the trees.
