A couple more fish tanks, water conservation displays and a cute little gift shop. Perfect for younger students or even preschoolers. Check on line before you go... More

Educational but fun place to visit. The hands on aspect makes it unique. Fun for all ages! Knowledgable staff clearly loves their job and adds to experience.

Educational and informative. Some of the prettiest fish tank displays in the area. Also, there is a very nice playground in the... More

Nice enough but just not much here. The volunteers (?) are nice and there are things to learn and see. Might be fun for kids but its about a 10 minute visit for adults.You may want to consider McArthur Park, 10 miles south (very nice and more to do but there is a fee) or Jonathan Dickenson Park, about 10...

So many great interactive displays to help people understand how we must live in harmony with the ecosystems around us. Admission is free, but throw a couple of dollars in the donation bin since they deserve it.

This is a wonderful, relatively new facility with cheerful volunteers that encouraged the kids to pick up sea cucumbers and showed them how starfish look on both sides and how they bury themselves. The volunteers also explained about the many lovely puffer and exotic fish in more than 4 tanks, as well as about their BIG moray eel. There are... More

The river cruise to Trapper Nelson's was scenic and we say alligators, osprey in nests, and many of the area's beautiful fauna.
