About the San Angelo Nature Center:
San Angelo Nature Center sits next to Lake Nasworthy in Mary Lee Park, and is a regional museum and learning center. Ever wondered just what the heck a "Texas horny toad" is? You can see the increasingly rare critters here (they are actually horned lizards, and, yes, they can squirt blood from their eyes!).
The San Angelo Nature Center's Discovery Room is popular with kids, who are allowed to feel and play with the exhibits. There is also a nature trail that is open, free of charge, during daylight hours. It includes three different ecosystems found in West Texas - semi-arid, wooded and wetlands.
Hours for the San Angelo Nature Center's museum, learning center and xeriscape garden are 1 to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday from August through May, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday in June and July. There is a nominal admission charge.
