The Lansing State Journal reports that the Fenner Nature Center in Lansing was listed as a treasure in Michigan native Matt Forster's book, "Michigan's Best Nature Centers and Wilderness Preserves". Forster also gave props to the Harris Nature Center in Meridian Township and Woldumar Nature Center in Lansing.

I've been to all three, though haven't really spent as much time at any of them as they deserve - it's on the list!

Forster's book also details the best campgrounds and hiking trails in Michigan.
