Directions to Highlands Biological Station

For those individuals who are not walking from the Highlands Inn to the Nature Center, please park in the Valentine parking lot. Also, please wear comfortable shoes because it is a bit of a walk from the Nature Center to the pavilion for lunch. However, it is a pretty walk and a great opportunity to stretch your legs after a 3-hour meeting.
