Stroll 110 acres of greenery, ranging from marshland and riparian habitats to upland vegetation areas. Spot visiting birds on 4.5 miles of trails, or take a break at educational areas including an ethnobotanical garden, a paleontology dig site and pollinator-welcoming gardens. Also at the preserve: the Gilbert Rotary Centennial Observatory
, where you can see comets, meteors, planets and the sun from our little blue dot. Just be sure to check the hours—the trails are generally open from dawn to dusk, but the observatory operates separately.
