Calusa Nature Center And Planetarium, Fort Myers Reviews

  • My girlfriend took me here on a date and within a week I was volunteering here. The staff are nothing but friendly and cool people. The place is like a Disney film from the 90’s! I have yet to have a day where I’ve come here and thought any less of this facility and faculty. It’s a wonderful and necessary education center that I hope to see prosper and stay for years to come!

  • The sad thing about a lot of the negative reviews is people fail to realize that the nature center is barely able to stay open a good percent of their staff are volunteers. You pay a small amount of money that isn't much and complain about small things. Yes, the projector that the shows are seen on is really outdated but you do realize that them things cost almost more then a house... I'm pretty sure over $10,000 easy. With a non-profit place like this not even possible to get. Their only income is from donations and you coming to visit. They don't get Government handouts in fact some of the higher up's would rather shut the place down and sell the land then to keep the place open. Day's like this I wish a could win the lottery because I'd end up buying the place. To secure the future of it for future generations. Sad thing is kids these day's have lost touch with the interest of nature and would rather sit at home playing video games rather then out being with nature catching lizards, frogs, ect and enjoying something that is a dying thing in today's world. Personally if I had transportation I'd Volunteer as much as I was allowed, I'm only about 5 minute drive up from there. Being on disability with no car makes it a bit hard to get up there. If it wasn't for my astronomy club vice president I wouldn't always be able to make it to club meetings. I wish people would realize that this place is really doing the best it can under the circumstances. It's like what $10 dollars a person? They would be lucky on a ''good'' day to make around $500 give or take.

  • I have lived in Fort Myers for over 30 years. Both my daughter and grandkids really enjoy this nature Center. They're is also a planetarium which has laser light shows located on site. If you are going to walk the trails plan on spending at least two hours there. If not at least an hour. They have nice exhibits and even some regarding local items and subjects. They provide homes for a number of injured animals that could not be returned to the wild. Nice friendly staff and volunteers.

  • I don’t usually leave reviews but after seeing this place I have to. The bald eagle they have is in such a small cage that I don’t even think it can fully spread it’s wings let alone FLY. It just looks depressed and hasn’t changed it’s position for an hour since I’ve been here. Are bald eagles meant to sit down for their entire lives and stare at walls? It’s saddening to see what they are doing to this majestic creature.

  • It is peaceful and beautiful and brings visitors and locals together with the animals and Florida's natural habitat. A place for all to enjoy and care for.
