  • Love this place!! Was a hidden gem near our RV park. So glad we found it! Free but they ask for donations to help care for the animals. Such a wide variety of animals and set up well in the space they have. Workers are very pleasant and willing to share their knowledge and love of the animals they care for.
  • This place is so cute and awesome to go to on any day. Be sure to bring cash for donations as it is “free” but they are able to run on generous donations.
  • This is a wonderful place! They rescue, rehabilitate and release native Florida wildlife. If an animal is unable to be released they give it a home at their facility. Their exhibit area is set up like a small zoo. There is no admission fee but they do have several donation boxes around the property for you to help support their cause. Another interesting aspect is that it is next to a water treatment facility and the treated or recycled water is used all around you ... Even the cypress swamp area uses it. The only downside is that they are closed on a Sundays. Check it out... have fun and get educated about our wonderful natural Florida!
  • Kids loved it and it's free. They have donation boxes if it's placed on your heart to help. Great for homeschoolers
  • They have several programs for homeschool families, for preschoolers in the morning and educational opportunities on the weekends. It's a fun place to head out to in the mornings for a small hike.
