    We stopped here for a Rainy Day activity. We were impressed with the passion of the people we met. We listened to 3 talks about the beaches, turtles and snakes. The displays are small but the experience was worth a visit.

No turtles on exhibit, only a couple snakes and a tarantula. The outdoor "nature trail" is a very short raised walkway that ends at a kayak/canoe launch open to the public.
