Our four outdoor aquariums, butterfly garden, FAU observation gallery, Ashley Trail, and indoor Nature Center are all open and available to explore. Adults and children enjoy learning about coastal Florida inside the Nature Center, with our interactive displays and live animals (snakes, musk turtles, hermit crabs, and golden orb weaver spider).

Visit our Gift Shop, located in the Nature Center, which sells not only tee shirts and books, but a wide variety of educational toys and “Green Living” products.  For staffing purposes, we do require advanced notice for groups shopping with children; an adult chaperone must assist children with their purchases.
