It's way out their. But yes, I've been their. Nothing to see here
Science and nature exhibits, a botanical garden, hiking, trails, and live animal shows.
Very cool with a historical yet fun vibe. Loved the botanical gardens but kind of hard to find.
When I think of Springs Preserve, what comes to mind is the large botanical garden that they have there. But Springs Preserve is so much more. They also have interactive science and nature exhibits, hiking, trails, and live animal shows. In addition, they also have summer camps for kids and they have a family "Night at the Museum" overnight activity coming up at the end of August. Great place to take the kids! And don't forget your camera!
An expanse of sites that people of all ages will enjoy, the Springs Preserve is the best glimpse of Las Vegas' more natural side that you will ever get. A Butterfly Garden, access to the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, a house made entirely out of sustainable materials, and over 3 miles of nature trails make up some of the fun activities the Springs Preserve offers. It's easy to get lost in the natural beauty the preserve offers, so it's almost imperative to have an itinerary prepped and ready before you start your day.
The Springs Preserve, which houses the Nevada State Museum, a botanical garden and a number of hiking and nature trails, is perfect for escaping the city and exploring the natural and cultural history of the Las Vegas Valley. There are also plenty of events and shows - including some with live animals - that are great for the whole family.
When you're tired of the ding-ding-ding of the slot machines, drive yourself northwest of the Strip and downtown to this combination history museum, natural history museum, environmental science center and nature preserve. It's built atop the site of the original springs (since dried up) that give Las Vegas ("The Meadows") its Spanish name.
