Warm weather at last! Today it is supposed to be sunshine and in the 70s. Outstanding! The warm weather brings out the flowers, the birds and lots of insects. It should be an amazing day to visit Fountain Rock Park.
Over the weekend, Fountain Rock Park & Nature Center was very busy with lots and lots of visitors. The sounds of families enjoying themselfs and children laughing could be heard throughout the park. Many of our visitors enjoyed up close and personal handling of some of our insects and reptiles. The favorites seemed to be the snakes and Madagascar hissing cockroachs.

I am always amazed how children are so inquisitive about the insects, reptiles and animals in the world. It is a wonderful experience for them to learn about nature.
