This was our third visit in the past 2 years. This time we were at the center for a birthday party for my 3 year old grandson. The guests included at least 15 3 year olds and some siblings (older and younger). Everyone had a great time.

we take our two young daughters from time to time. Once our older one had a birthday party there. Young staff were very polite and pleasant, I should add they are also knowledgeable.

I was driving near this center when I saw a man standing in the middle of a busy road. I stopped to ask what was up, he was protecting a good sized turtle not knowing what to do with it. I put it in a shopping bag after wetting down a cloth with my bottled water an brought it to... More

This place is gr eat to spend a day. my 8 year old had a blast here. He didn't want to leave! We got to pet ferrets, chinchilla s, snakes, turtles, tortoises, reptiles, and doves! We thought it was expensive at 7$ pp, but after we left we were convinced it was worth it. We spent at least three hrs... More

Hands on experience of huge variety of petting animals and snakes and turtles. Fabulous opportunity to get up front and personal with animals cradled lovingly in the hands of enthusiastic young naturalists. Perfect way for children to get comfortable with the animal world, but also interesting to their parents and grandparents.

We have taken our children to this center many times and are now members. The staff of mostly volunteers are wonderful, caring and very knowledgeable about the animals and habitat. The new playground is beautifully designed and fun for kids of all ages. They offer programs, talks and events constantly so check out their website before visiting. Better yet, become... More

Nice way to spend a day with the family. You can peruse the exhibits, speak with the nature experts, walk on the trails. We used to take the children here often when they were younger.

We now return with our grandchildren who love this place as much as their parents did when they were children. The staff is assisted by many volunteers (middle & high school students), most of whom are knowledgable and seem to like kids. They take the animals out and allow the kids to touch & handle them. If you plan to... More

I wish there was more to this place. It is a great concept but I always leave disappointed. It's really all about funding. They do the best they can with limited funds and volunteers. Unless they are having a special event it is not the place to take children older than 8 or so. There is simply not that much... More
