This was not with the price of admission. Run down, overgrown and we saw all of it in 30 minutes. They’re trying to do a good thing here, but until they dump some money into some upgrades, it’s a bust.

The paths we're all flooded out. They warn you so it wasn't a surprise but it was a bummer

I became ill entering the Invasive species room. mold all over the ceiling. I also realize the animals are all injured but the care is lacking. It looked over grown and outdated, trails looked unsafe. no thanks.

Very friendly staff. Planetarium show is very nice. Todd is knowledgeable regarding his presentation of stars & planets. Added personal information too which was nice. Trails have tree cover but still it was hot for walking. Aviary talk was informative, I felt saddened by injured raptors. Butterfly house small scale but full of butterflies at this time.

About Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium

Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium, an environmental education non-profit that began as a project by Lee County's Junior Welfare League in the 1960s, is a 105-acre facility that hosts injured wildlife native to the Fort Myers area in addition to surrendering. These animals—plus the birds of prey from their rehabilitation aviary, the newest addition to the property—are the stars of daily animal demos and special talks by volunteers and specialists.

After a stroll through the butterfly house or down one of three walking trails, which meander through the cypress dome swamp and neighboring pine flatlands, guests take a load off at the onsite planetarium: the 44-foot dome can host up to 90 people for their astronomy and laser shows. Camps, field trips, and nature clubs take advantage of the meeting pavilions and picnics areas around the nature center.
