  • We had a wonderful time visiting the folks at Children's nature center in their new location. Our guide Josie was just faboulous and incredibly knowlegable about the creatures she was describing

  • One of my favorite places to bring my niece's (ages 5 & 8) and they absolutely love it! There are all types of exotic animals that have either been rescued, surrendered, or brought in by authorities and won't survive in the world so I think this place is doing such a nice thing for the animals. The staff is also extremely informative and the tour is so educational for the kids (and for me!) They're a nonprofit so I don't think the cost is very much at all ($6 for kids $9 for adults) I highly recommend it here!
  • What a great experience! Had so much fun with my family from out of town and my 3 year old daughter. Will go back probably once a month. Great prices for what we got to do and see, and the gift shop was great. Cute toys and shirt and jewlery. Hope they get more animals/reptiles soon!
