Today (April 22nd, 2013- Earth Day ) Mia and I went with a couple of friends to the Ecology Center to play at the playground and see the animals.
It is one of our favorite places with plenty of things to do there.
There are so many things to do here and it is free and open to the public ( but donations are appreciated )
My family loves it here and we will continue to go and support such a great site.
We first went to the playground at the ecology center which is huge and so much fun…. Mia loves the baby swings : )
Then we went to the Animal Preserve to see all the animals. What I love about this preserve is these animals are being taken care of and are in a safe environment after being injured and can not return to the wild.
When you first enter the preserve you are greeted by some hungry goats, a smiling camel and an American Buffalo.
You will also see Deer, Minature horses, Bear, and Donkeys.
There are so many animals: Red Fox, Bobcat, Eagles, Chickens, Peacocks, Pigs, Cows and Turtles. A great place for kids and adults to visit in their neighborhood : )
Not only is there a playground and animal preserve but there is also greenhouses, picnic areas, gardens and a 1.2 walking/ jogging trail
Great place to visit I love the Holtsville Ecology Center and so will you.
Located at : 249 Buckley Road in Holtsville, NY 11742

Aw!! I grew up in Holtsville, and spent so much time at the Ecology center through my childhood and adolescence. Browsing around on wordpress for earth day posts I found this and it was so nice to see the place I consider home featured heret! Thank you for making this post, you brought a smile to my day 🙂
It is an amazing place and I hope it never gets shut down for budget cuts I know they were thinking about it last year. I love this place and I am glad it made you smile…my daughter loves it and it is truly an amazing ecological center on Long Island.
