I took my grandchildren here during the summer. They really enjoyed it! They especially enjoyed the large fish tanks and the live animal exhibits, snakes and such. The mounted animals were good picture opportunities. I will probably take them back again.

The ECO Center is not only an educational benefit it's a place of environmental impact. The staff members are very knowledgeable and "go out of their way" to make your visit memorable.

There was a "going away" party held here for the Japanese visiting students. I think they were impressed with the facility and the hospitality of the hosts families. The acquarium exhibits are excellent.

Good aquariums with fish found in the Coosa River drainage area. There is even a trout stream that the local Trout unlimited Chapter installed. The hours of operation seem somewhat inconsistent and it may be closed to the public when school groups are there.
