“Informative, Reasonabaly Priced, Great for Kids”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Beautiful location. The Saturday I visited a number of youthful and knowledgeable volunteers were doing an excellent showing the animals to visitors and letting children see the animals up close. There are exhibits on mammals, reptiles, amphibian, fish, buttterflies,shells insects, etc. both native to Texas and from other parts of the world. Very fascinating. I thought the animals all seemed healthy and well cared for and cages were very clean. Larger mammals and a one mile interpretive trail (not wheelchair or stroller accessible as it is narrow) are outside. A brochure telling about the 20 interpretative sites on the trail is available at the front desk. Closed Sunday and Mondays.

“Great place for the family to enjoy together”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

This entertained our family from young to near senior. The staff was very informative and friendly and cared about the animals. I especially liked Baby the prairie dog and was so glad I got to pet her!

“A Wonderful Adventure!!”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

What an amazing place to spend some time in San Angelo. See the bobcats, lemur, raccoons, prarie dogs and many more. If you are a snake person t his is a must see.
The San Angelo Nature center is one of the few places that can import species from Mexico. DON'T MISS THIS JEWEL hidden out by Lake Nasworthy.
