"Really enjoyed our first visit to Oregon Ridge. We took the kids to see how Maple syrup is "tapped" from the trees. That was really great. There was still snow on the ground so I probably didnt get as much as I would out of it if we could hike around more. Cant wait till our next visit there. "

"Our family just visited Oregon ridge for the first time this weekend to learn about making maple syrup. The program was well done and they were happy to answer any and all questions. The nature center itself was ok. Snakes, turtles and fish. A lot of stuffed animals. I like the Irvine Nature Center a bit better. The grounds look perfect for a walk, but a little too much snow this time around. Next visit."
