Share & Discover
With the Nature Trading Post, children can share exciting finds discovered outdoors. Traders earn points by learning facts about the natural object they have collected. Points can be saved up and traded for other cool items found at the Nature Trading Post. Come on out and add to your collection!
The Nature Trading Post is open on the 2nd and 4th Saturday, April-October, from 1pm-4 pm. The Post is located in the stone building next to the Butterfly Habitat on the Blue Hole Trail.
Fun ideas for trade items include rocks, minerals, fossils, clean bones/skulls, antlers, teeth, cocoons, spider webs, snake skins, turtle shells and exoskeletons of insects.
