Nature centers are a staple for our family - we choose to visit Nature Centers when visiting an area to acquaint ourselves with the flora and fauna of the area, as well as the regional history. Our experience at the Central Arkansas Nature Center was exceptional! The knowledgeable and personable man who greeted us, was the Director of the Center, Neil Curry. The volunteer at the desk was also a great example of the friendliness we've come to expect when we visit Little Rock.
