We go to the Nature Center (about 5 minutes away) every week. Carson is working on his Reptile Merit Badge, and one of the requirements is to observe a reptile once a week for 3 months.
It has all kinds of hands-on exhibits about local nature and animals
there's a box turtle, 3 snakes, and 3 other turtles
Savannah's at the 'what's that sound' button station, where she can push a button and hear the sounds/calls of different birds and insects and animals
Carson is observing the corn snake in the bottom cage.
They have trails around the nature center and an outdoor play discovery area for kids to dig in the sand, along with a frog pond. They have lots of programs/classes here through the county
