Back to Nature

Escape the city, get Back to Nature.

Forget your worries, escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and reconnect with your wild roots. Join us for Back to Nature, an interactive exhibit featuring new animals such as parrots, mice, iguanas, falcons, frogs, and more! Be among the first to walk through our new Native Pollinator Garden, attracting butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees while learning about the role of native pollinators in our everyday lives. As we celebrate our 30 year anniversary, we invite you to look back to simpler times on the Sweetwater Refuge and leave your troubles back in the city.
