The LSC has brought many interesting creatures to places such as your local libraries, so why not check them out in their home location?

Their animals include species native to the region, as well many unique and exotic animals that have been donated by supporters. See some adorable and and *ahem* unusual animals and that will help kids develop an appreciation for the incredible diversity of the natural world.

It will be good for the adults, too.

Sundays, June 23 and 30, 2013. Noon-3:00 p.m. The LSC is at 1831 Traver Road, Ann Arbor. 734-997-1553.

Anytime Leslie is open you can go see the raptors in their nicely-appointed homes. It's a lot of fun.

I highly recommend a visit! View the biggest lizard you've ever seen, snakes, turtles, plus amazing birds including super cute owls. Notice the interesting recycled glass sidewalk by the bird houses......lean down, you can see the pieces of pretty colored glass in there. Also, take a look at the garden area, with colorful blooms, a Pizza Garden, cottage gates, bright painted signs, and a relaxing gazebo with seats. Leslie Science Center-a great place to visit!
