Scales Nature Park

Nature enthusiast Jeff Hathaway shares a passion for Canada's indigenous animals—specifically amphibians and reptiles. At Scales Nature Park, staff and volunteers introduce visitors of all ages to more than 300 cold-blooded specimens from more than 60 species, most of which are native to Canada. The wildlife-conservation facility also houses exotic reptiles and amphibians donated by their owners or seized from private homes by protective agencies. An indoor nature centre showcases some animals in custom-built enclosures and serves as the venue for a range of programs, including hands-on animal demonstrations, guided walks, and guest lectures. The surrounding 21-hectare park, with 3 km of nature trails, features natural habitats including ponds, wetlands, and hardwood forest. Outreach programs for schools, libraries, birthday parties, and other venues, are conducted around the province.

I thought the staff were wonderful, the kids get closer to the animals here.

This place is a 'diamond in the ruff'! I will refer to everyone I know! Although it's small, there's lots to see and what makes it well worth the trip is the incredible staff and all the hands on experiences. The kids LOVED wearing a snake around their neck!

We had an amazing time. Staff were very informative and we loved all the hands on time. We will go back again :) and my 7 year old can't wait until she is old enough to volunteer!
