The Children's Nature Center (CNC), a 501 C 3 nonprofit, is the only living museum within a 250-mile radius that exhibits exotic animals in naturalist habitats. The center hosts more than 150 unique creatures, ranging from 16-foot pythons to 1-inch-long dart frogs to lively stingrays. We have saltwater and freshwater habitats, displaying wide variety of aquatic life. CNC features a collection of snakes, reptiles, and amphibians. Our living and inanimate exhibits are all designed to educate guests on animals, wildlife, and the environment.

Your funding will accumulate with others to help support our animals, their habitats, educational programs, and exhibits.
