Adopt a Critter

At Fountain Rock Nature Center, we believe in a hands-on approach to learning. It’s why we like to include close encounters with wildlife in many of our programs. Our resident animals – the snakes, lizards, turtles, insects, and spiders that call the nature center home – are often the stars of our programs. As educational ambassadors for their species, they provide an opportunity for children and adults to learn about local wildlife up close and personal.

How You Can Support Our Animals’ Care

Starting at just $10 you can symbolically adopt a resident animal of your choice for one year. Your tax-deductible donation is directly applied to the care of your chosen animal and helps provide the hands-on learning many have come to expect at Fountain Rock. In return, we’re happy to provide you with:

  • Your name on the animals’ enclosure and a certficate of adoption
  • A fact sheet about your animal
  • A letter from the animal mid-year through the adoption
  • A chance to interact and take a picture with your animal

Please contact Sean at or call 301-600-4460 for details.
