The reserve's Interpretive Center includes a museum area with displays about the local habitats, history and culture. The Center grounds are landscaped with native plants and scattered with picnic tables. Exhibits include a plethora of dynamic taxidermy of many native animals and plants, backlit exhibit panels, an extensive specimen collection, a live animal room and other cultural and historical displays The Education & Research building includes a small auditorium, dormitory and kitchen for visiting researchers and small research library.
