  • A wonderful place to bring children and adults!! The museum and fish hatchery is well taken care of and the volunteers our always nice and kind. A wonderful FREE experience!! A must visit if you're in town 🤗

  • We are so very disappointed with the state. We brought in a baby magpie, fell out of nest after being attacked by a crow. We told them to please let us know if they were going to euthanize. Never heard a word! Called them 1 hour later and it was dead. We wanted to keep it. No warning, no word. Kiss off to the whole government. That is why we call you gestapo. Boo hiss

  • Dude had the best mustache. Always helpful.

  • Great place to watch kayaking stunts and white water rapids adventure.

  • Only a short walk from downtown on the beautiful river trail of Durango is this wonderful place of family fun, learning and ty he best part it's free. They offer a live fish hatchery where for 25 cents you can feed the fish yourself. Its as always fun to see the fish go food crazy weather you have food in had or not. They also offer a wonderful museum. It's open Monday thru Saturday from 10 am to 5pm and Sunday from 11 to 3pm. Stop in for a short 15 min film and then see and learn about the wildlife of the area. They also offer activities for the young children. This should be a definite stop when visiting Durango Colorado.
