Zoo & Nature Center offers visitors a chance to interact
with a variety of animals. Domestic species representative
of plantation life and creatures native to the area are more
than happy to be met, pet and fed (especially fed!). The
Zoo & Nature Center offers a unique opportunity for visitors
to encounter white-tailed deer! Exhibits featuring
indigenous species, including the gray fox, beaver, bobcat
and birds of prey, give visitors a chance to view animals
that typically are not easily seen in the wild. The Zoo &
Nature Center also features a reptile house, allowing guests
to safely encounter some of the state's native lizards,
turtles and snakes, including venomous species!
