The Visitor Center includes hands-on displays on environmental features of the area, as well as history of the Coffin family who homesteaded the site, and other early Longmont history. There is no admission fee to the Visitor Center. A nature trail from the Visitor Center takes you past several historical buildings, near the sandstone bluffs, and includes a scenic overlook. Numerous species of wildlife and birds are seen frequently on the property including white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, bald eagles and red-tailed hawks. Walking or Biking Directions: Hop onto the St. Vrain Greenway and follow it east. The trail will lead you straight to the Visitors Center.
