I went to the Nature Center with my daughter and my 4 grandchildren visiting from out of state. We loved it and they enjoyed holding a few of the animals and seeing so many neat ones from the area and other parts of the world. It was worth the time!!

We loved this place. It is very interesting and the nature specialist let us pet a snake, a prairie dog, a turtle and some other animals. She is really nice. We loved it. It is located just on the site of the lake where there is a very nice view.

There are exhibits on mammals, reptiles, amphibian, fish, buttterflies,shells insects, etc. both native to Texas and from other parts of the world. Very fascinating. I thought the animals all seemed... More

This entertained our family from young to near senior. The staff was very informative and friendly and cared about the animals. I especially liked Baby the prairie dog and was so glad I got to pet her!

What an amazing place to spend some time in San Angelo. See the bobcats, lemur, raccoons, prarie dogs and many more. If you are a snake person t his is a must see. The San Angelo Nature center is one of the few places that can import species from Mexico. DON'T MISS THIS JEWEL hidden out by Lake Nasworthy.
