This place is a great little place to take a nature walk with you children. We go here several times a year. The exhibits show the different stages of hatching fish and they have a large pond where you can watch the large sturgeon.

We took a trip to Boise and decided to visit this place. It was a nice visit, but overpriced for something so small. You get to see about 10 different birds of prey, but it took less than 1 hour to see the entire thing...More

The last I knew it was not open on Mondays. However, other days it is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They have tours and live bird showings scheduled as well as providing the freedom to look around on your own.
