You don't need a lot of time for a visit to the Leslie Science Center's Birds of Prey exhibit. It is fabulous to see owls, eagles and other raptors up close and personal. Good signage to describe what you're seeing.

Small, but with character. Fabulous place for kids to see the beauty of animals up close. Plus they do a great job helping animals.

Well run, hands-on camp experience for kids - an educational, fun time. The staff really knows their stuff and imparts a love of nature to the kids. Cool animals, too.

Bring the kids to view local wildlife up close. All animals here were injured and from rehab but are unable to sustain themselves in the wild, which is why they're used for learning. Accessible to all, good parking and close to town. Nice programs for...More
