Located in the small town of Metamora, Michigan (north of Detroit) is an amazing nature center that is perfect for kids and adults, alike. The Seven Ponds Nature Center: Schemm Naish Interpretive Building is where you pull up and park in the large and unpaved parking lot (good rain drainage for the watershed). A privately funded and volunteer staffed center, there are trails outdoors and extensive displays indoors (planned well for those rainy days). Though we visited on a sunny, hot summer day we could easily have spent much more time exploring and reading the signage inside. A wonderful weekend or weekday destination!
