  • Halloween there. Overly crowded. Fun costume parade with prizes
  • Their electra critters display was pretty nice this year. I was disappointed that the trail wasn't as long as it used to be. Still worth the money.
  • We bring our grandkids here every year. They just love it.
  • Fun place to learn about local animals, beautiful trails, sweet staff, clean facility. LOVE the butterfly garden!
  • Worthwhile place to visit in Wichita Falls. If you want to learn about the local critters, go no further. They have a friendly staff of volunteers when were eager to show us around. The roadrunner and butterfly room were definitely highlights of the trip.
