The Nature Center is something of a cross between a mini museum and a mini zoo. It is a wonderful place for smaller children to learn about nature. The wonderful staff there bring out all sorts of animals and allow the children to touch and pet them.
Most of the exhibits deal with small animals that live in the western part of Texas, so its a good place to go when you want to identify a local critter.
