Come and visit this 105-acre natural oasis in town on the Lee Island Coast. Take a stroll on their boardwalks through pine flat woods and cypress wetlands. Visit their Audubon aviary, home to permanently injured hawks, owls and eagles. Have a close and personal encounter with their rattlesnakes, non-venomous reptiles and live insect collection in their museum. Soar with the region's only planetarium.
