Who, Who Came to Visit?
We had a barred owl family – including three owlets – visiting! Visitors from around the world enjoyed this exciting opportunity!
You never know what type of fascinating species you’re going to see when you visit the Iris Griffith Centre!
May Day in Madeira Park
We had a great day at May Day in Madeira Park on May 16th!
Hopefully you had a chance to come see our aquarium, book sale, and informative displays! Did you see the Wood Duck Bus in the parade?
Egmont Day Aquaria
We hope you had the opportunity to join us on June 6th for Egmont Days! We had a salt water tank with many creatures including an octopus, and four touch tanks!
And once again, the Wood Duck Bus made an appearance in the parade!
Nature School Was a Blast!
From pond dipping to animal tracking, the children and instructors alike had a ton of fun at Nature School this past school year!
We hope to see many of you again next school year, or come check out our Lagoonies Kids Club this summer!
