"Before the classes our toddler refused to touch bugs and was scared of most animals, now she’s a regular explorer. These classes really gave her a chance to be brave and taught her the importance of bugs and reptiles. I recommend Oxbow to every parent I meet and it’s definitely one of our favorite places to visit!" - 2021 Parent Testimonial
