The exhibits at the River Center each represent a different habitat located along Florida’s first National Wild and Scenic River.  With over 6,000 gallons for fresh and saltwater aquariums, visitors can expect to see some interesting creatures that call the Loxahatchee River home.   Be sure to stop by the touch tank to meet some critters up close!  There are several interactive exhibits to engage everyone.

Visitors can expect to spend 30 minutes to 1 hour viewing and interacting with exhibits and touching animals.  The River Center also offers a host of family, adult and school programs as well.
