  • We had a wonderful time visiting the folks at Children's nature center in their new location. Our guide Josie was just faboulous and incredibly knowlegable about the creatures she was describing  more »
  • This was honestly one of the absolute best experiences here in Grand Junction. My nine year old had a fantastic time, everyone is very friendly, and the staff handled even really young kiddos incredibly well. We will absolutely be back!
  • We are visiting my in laws in a small town nearby and were looking for a fun activity for our 4 year old. This place is perfect. It's not super fancy, inside the Mesa Mall (no outside sign), about the size of two mall stores put together. It's filled with mostly rescue snakes, turtles, tortoises, other reptiles, and a few birds and fish. After you pay, you wash your hands and a person walks your small group from animal to animal, teaching you about the animal, and letting you touch many of them. We were in and out in less than 2 hours. It was a nice, air conditioned kid outting. There is a small play space that seemed good for infants and toddlers and also a small gift shop of sorts near the register.
