"Connection....Conservation....Research....Education with nature".
The Children's Nature Center (CNC) is the only zoological center within a 250-mile radius that exhibits exotic animals in naturalist habitats. The center hosts more than 120 unique creatures, ranging from 13-foot pythons to 1-inch-long dart frogs to lively stingrays. We have saltwater habitats, brackish water habitat, freshwater habitat, as well as numerous coral tanks with a wide variety of aquatic life. CNC features a collection of snakes, reptiles, and amphibians, as well as the largest indoor honey beehive in Colorado and a variety of colorful parrots. Our living and inanimate exhibits are all designed to educate guests on animals, wildlife, and the environment.
