Earthplace


It's not easy being green, but it can be fun if you visit the exhibits at Earthplace in Westport, Connecticut. This 62-acre wildlife sanctuary is committed to educating the public about the environment and promoting positive action to preserve nature. The exhibits provide hands-on features that make learning fun for your kids. If your kids like creepy crawlers, check out the Ecology Resource Lab and get acquainted with some critters. After touring the exhibits, visit the garden and the playground, and enjoy the summer weather.
