There are some places that are just a great place to meet with family, enjoy nature and make memories that you can go back year after year and never get tired of. Salato Wildlife Education Center is one of those places we have been enjoying for over than 10 years. Every time we go back for a new visit, they have added a new exhibit or done some improvements on the existing trails and facilities.
