In 1969 the City of Richfield converted the drained area to a Nature Center, and has supported it for over 30 years.

  1. The outing was well-organized with interesting conversation about the enviroment, land use and public transit. The walk around the Wood Lake Nature Center was very enjoyable with great weather.
