The ECO Station is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching young kids about the environment, wildlife and the preservation of our planet. Your visit isn't just entertainment; it's also an education. In each room, the volunteer explains why the animals are there, why they don't make great pets and what we can do to protect them.
The Station hosts special events almost every month. We attended during last year's "DinoFaire," which featured an hour-long kid's show about the history of dinosaurs, plus the chance to touch real fossils. During our tour of the Station, the kids enjoyed a special "dino dig," allowing them to sift, clean and identify the dinosaur "fossils." Upcoming events include African American Art Festival (February 6) and Children's Earth Day (April 25). See more at Go Explore Nature: http://tinyurl.com/72x9urf
