Location: Mesa Mall: 2424 Old US HWY 6 & 50 Grand Junction, CO 81505
Details: Paint for a Cause! Come out and support the Children's Nature Center (CNC) by painting Isaac, their star Pig-Nosed Turtle! Part of the proceeds will be donated to the CNC. The CNC is a non-profit organization and is the only living museum within a 250-mile radius that exhibits exotic animals in naturalist habitats. The center hosts more than 120 unique creatures, ranging from 13-foot pythons to 1-inch-long dart frogs to lively stingrays. The ticket price includes admission to the center's exhibits. View and learn about the creatures from 12-1pm then sit down to your own pre-sketched canvas and paint! Everything will be supplied for you, just come, relax and paint with us! Ticket sales end July 16th so be sure to purchase your ticket before then. The CNC is located near Sears in the Mesa Mall. There is no outside entrance to the CNC so enter thru Sears and find us inside the mall. About Isaac: Center Name: Isaac Species: Pig-nosed Turtle Conservation Status: Vulnerable due to pet trade smuggling. Isaac is an omnivore and a unique freshwater turtle. He has the look of a marine turtle with flippers but can only stay in rivers. He can breathe air through his nose but also take it from the water with the gills he has in his throat and butt. Isaac is playful with zookeepers but a powerful beak warns against visitors sticking fingers in his tank. However, he does like attention from visitors, just not in his water. He can be found at The Children's Nature Center photobombing pictures with guests. About the CNC: The Children's Nature Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that strives for education, research, and conservation. For the price of admission, a tour is taken with a biologist or volunteer who will tell you about our 150+ animal ambassadors, many of which are rescues from previous homes. The Children's Nature Center attempts to bring an interactive education of biologies, ecologies, and zoologies from around the world. We hope that you can join us for this unique experience!
