The Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium is a private, not for profit, environmental education organization located in Fort Myers, Florida. Our 105 acre site has a museum, three nature trails, a Planetarium, butterfly and bird aviaries, a gift shop and meeting and picnic areas. Strolling through our Museum, visitors can learn about Southwest Florida’s natural history. Daily educational programs allow visitors an up close and personal view of some of our resident creatures, including a skunk, a raccoon, fox, Butterfly Aviary, and an Audubon Aviary which houses permanently injured birds of prey (hawks, vultures, bald eagles, owls and more!). Various reptiles, amphibians and arthropods are also waiting for you. The Museum’s interpretive displays address many issues affecting our area, from water resources to the plight of the endangered manatee. The stars are always out in our Planetarium, the only one south of Bradenton and west of the Miami! Check the Planetarium pages for astronomical happenings and other special events.
