Animal Ambassadors

Our Animal Ambassadors Can Visit You!

Did you know that the Nature Center visits local community organizations, schools, libraries, and more with some of our wildlife ambassadors? If you are a teacher or programmer and would like us to come to your location with some of our animal friends, we can make that happen. Invite a snake into your classroom and toss your misconceptions out the window. Request an opossum to make an appearance at your scout troop meeting and learn about adaptations. Welcome an alligator to your group’s meeting and be amazed at what conservation efforts can yield. In you would like us to visit you, contact us for more information. We hope to see you in your neighborhood—or here at the Nature Center!
