Great place for kids that love nature!

My nature loving 8 year old boy loves to visit! They are always patient with his many questions and he’s participated in all the classes, a few even twice. The Jr Naturalist option is a great way to learn what goes on behind the scenes to care for all the creatures at the center also.

Fishing 101 Excursion at Omni Amelia Island

My son (age 5) and I did the Fishing 101 excursion at the Omni Amelia Island and it was a lot of fun. My son and I haven't fished much but the instructor, Mark, helped out a lot and was very patient with the kids. For a beginning, it was nice that it was only an hour long. It provided enough time to learn, have fun and keep the kids engaged.

Panning for a Shark Tooth

Went on an Adult Shark Tooth Adventure with Mark, a local Naturalist. Was very impressed with his knowledge of the area. We ‘panned’ for a shark tooth in some of the shell debris near the water line at the beach and found a tooth! It was the 1st time I’ve ever found one! Highly recommend Mark and his expertise!
