A Touch Table inside the Charles Newell Hall Museum named after Mr. Hall who was instrumental in developing the center. Mounted birds, turtles and snakes on display.
A kiosk lists the land and aquatic turtles native to Florida and the correct handling of turtles. Watch closely for a turtle in one of the cages to appear from underneath a log or a man-made turtle burrow.





A Diorama inside the nature center filled with different species. Ancient fossils, a rock and butterfly exhibit. Pick up a brochure about the birds of the nature center and a trail map. Free entrance to the museum. Hours of operation on the website.
