You can “adopt” an animal here at the Nature Center by sponsoring their care! When you adopt a Nature Center animal, you foster a deeper connection with our furry, scaly or feathered inhabitants while making a real impact on their well-being. Your sponsorship helps cover an animal’s food, habitat, enrichment and care for a year. With your sponsorship, you will also receive an official certificate of sponsorship along with other goodies.
It’s my Birthday!
“Bigfoot” – Yellow-footed Tortoise
July is Bigfoot’s birthday month! Yellow-footed tortoises like Bigfoot originate from South America and have a typical diet of leafy greens, slugs and snails. They can live to be 50 years or older! You can find Bigfoot in the reptile room of the Live Animal Museum.
