South Florida Parenting

1801 N. Ocean Blvd., Boca Raton; 561-338-1473

Family-oriented programs that make learning about nature fun are what make this place so popular. Inside, visitors can explore several exhibits and dis-plays, aquariums and live animals.

Outside, view the world from a 40-foot observation tower and take a stroll on an elevated boardwalk through the ham-mock and mangroves.

Rare and endangered species such as the manatee, the brown pelican, the osprey and sea turtles can often be observed on or from the facility.
