We drove back to the Center (which is located right on the road that leads to the beach) in time for the Planetarium show.... More

The birds were in small and old cages but was told most couldn't fly or were being rehabilitated to be released at a later date. Many programs exist for scouting groups, children's camps or family learning centre but not really... More

An outstanding setting for introducing children to a variety of regional "wild" animal characters in an intelligent, classy and humane fashion. A must for any family that wishes to help their young members better appreciate the world around them. Also of interest has been the graphic show explaining some facts and ideas about our universe. One should be advised to... More

Animals of local nature to view. Small venue so not overwhelming for young children. Very educational. Special programs periodically offered geared to families with kids.

This place has been around since the 60's still good after all these years. The people here have a heart of gold, they take injured wild animals nurse then back to good health, release the ones that will survive in the wild the others become residences of the nature center.
