Located on the western edge of Zilker Park, the Austin Nature & Science Center is dedicated to the exploration of the natural world. Since 1960, ANSC has provided nature exhibits, education programs, and recreation resources for countless visitors, teachers, and children of all ages. When you come by for a visit you will be able to meet a coyote and red-tailed hawk in our Wildlife Exhibits. You can follow the path of Texas fossil hunters and un-cover evidence of pre-historic life in the Dino Pit. You can explore natural science specimans and add to your own collection through the Naturalist Workshop and Trade Counter. Come on by and help us celebrate natural wonders of Austin!
