It is a cute place. It needs a bit of TLC, though. A lot areas were closed or run down. It is a good place to spend a few hours with kids The planetarium was very nice and the gentleman that was presenting was very knowledgeable.

We had a very fun time at the nature center. There were trails and interactive animal experiences. The gentleman who ran the planetarium show was extremely knowledgeable and you could tell he enjoyed sharing his information. We had a great time.

An awesome experience! I have lived here 26 years and this was my first trip there. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend it. Plan on going to lunch afterwards since they don’t have any food or beverages there.

The location is small and hidden away. The caretakers are very friendly and informative. The planetarium was a pleasant addition. Loved learning about all the different animals.

About Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium

Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium, an environmental education non-profit that began as a project by Lee County's Junior Welfare League in the 1960s, is a 105-acre facility that hosts injured wildlife native to the Fort Myers area in addition to surrendering. These animals—plus the birds of prey from their rehabilitation aviary, the newest addition to the property—are the stars of daily animal demos and special talks by volunteers and specialists.

After a stroll through the butterfly house or down one of three walking trails, which meander through the cypress dome swamp and neighboring pine flatlands, guests take a load off at the onsite planetarium: the 44-foot dome can host up to 90 people for their astronomy and laser shows. Camps, field trips, and nature clubs take advantage of the meeting pavilions and picnics areas around the nature center.
