  • Piper is so happy and adorable. Great educational experience with happy animals. I recommend this place to everyone especially with children. My only suggestion is more advertising.

  • Happened upon the place after stopping by the beach. Very friendly staff who were very knowledgeable about the animals in their nature center. The kids loved being able to feed the small pig that they have there, Piper. For $2 you get a small baggie of veggies to feed the pig. Their Yellow Umbrella bird, Baby bird, was entertaining and fun to watch. Would definitely recommend the place to families with early elementary school kids.
