Nature Center and Animal Life Program
The Nature and Animal Life Programs at Refreshing Mountain provide memorable, educational, and interactive experiences for the whole family!
There are three main aspects of the nature program, one being our educational nature studies program (choose from 3 exciting one-hour courses); our nature center, which features an impressive (and very hands on) reptile display with over 30 species; and our horse & farm animal program, where you can pet/feed animals and even ride a horse!
3 Unique Nature Experiences:
In this program, you can pick and choose one of 3 different hour-long studies: Pennsylvania Woodlands, Reptiles & Amphibians, or our Ponds & Streams studies.
Our new Nature Center is an indoor and outdoor hands-on learning experience with naturalistic and zoological exhibits featuring snakes, amphibians, native lizards, turtles, and other unique things like animal pelts, bird nests, and more!
Snake Feeding Fridays
Ever wonder how snakes open their jaws so wide? Ever want to see a snake eat its prey up close? Our Snake Feeding Fridays will meet that desire! Watch and learn about the different ways these predators kill their prey, and what different types of snakes eat as one of our Reptile Keepers feeds the snakes humanely euthanized rodents.
