Up close and personal with nature, incuding an eagle and other raptors. Even fox and coyote live here. Fun snakes and spiders you can touch if you want to... and a skunk you can visit. Very fun family adventure.

There are a few large zoos in Bay area, but this might be a good alternative. It's small (and free!) but it provides a better emotional connection. There are stories behind the animals. Also, it's less crowded and less distraction. Great nature center!
