Our staff guided tours offer experiences that include up close and personal encounters with some of our diverse and fascinating species. Each tour is guided by one of our trained Educators who will teach you about our animals, and allow you to touch, hold or even feed them. During the guided tour, you will be able to feed our 100-pound African-spurred tortoise, enter our free-flight aviary where you can hand feed our birds, you can hold snakes and lizards, and enjoy a fun play time with our furry mammals! With over 80 animals living at our facility, the experience guests gain at the Barn Nature Center promises to be fun, educational, and unlike any other. There are no minimum group sizes for Nature Center Tours - everyone is welcome! We do kindly ask that guided tours be scheduled at least a week in advance.
