    My girlfriend and I just stopped by today and we both had a fantastic time. Everyone was friendly and extremely knowledgeable and interacted with the customers very well. We spent a good hour and change checking out the frogs and butterflies, watching a video about the life cycle of monarchs, and browsing the gift shop. I certainly recommend anyone of any age to make the trip in the heart of the Poconos. Thank you for such a fun time. I learned a lot.
