It was all about the Western Bluebird the day I visited......

The 18-acre Shipley Nature Center has many easy walking pathways lined with wildflowers and butterflies. Great place to take kids and just enjoy all kinds of nature. The day we visited (in July) the Western Bluebirds stole the show. I couldn't help but spend an hour just watching them enter in and out of the nesting boxes feeding their young. You will want to check out the gift shop and indoor nature exhibits.
