Reviews for Rattlebox Nature Center Ltd

Rating: 5 stars  

We recently had a Pony Party at Rattlebox for our daughter's Birthday. It was the most wonderful party and lots of great memories were made. All of the guests were knocked out with how unique and fun the day was. So great to have the kids outside and enjoying an active, educational, and most importantly FUN day! Thanks Valerie!

Rattle box is a highlight in our lives! My 7 year old daughters love caring for and riding the ponies and visiting with and learning about all the other animals. Valerie has made my girls' dream of "having a horse" come true. They're learning so much. Valerie and Rattlebox are treasures!

My girls had a great experience at Rattlebox Nature Center this summer. They loved the animals and loved that they had a responsibility in the care of the animals. Valerie does a great job of teaching them how to be safe and kind to the animals. We will definitely be back.

Rattlebox Nature Center is a true gem. Valerie (the owner) is the kind of person you just plain want to have in your kids' lives. She runs an amazing animal rescue and nature center that not only serves its furry, feathered and scaled friends well, but engages the children who visit deeply in animal care, activism, life-skills learning, and FUN! My children love to spend time with Valerie and I love to watch as her work with them imparts a sense of justice, kindness and responsibility in each of them. It is inspiring to watch her interact with her visitors and campers and to know that there are still people out there who try every day, with all of their heart, to make the world a better place!

Valerie is one of the most influential people in my children's lives. Each week my 2 and 4 year old sons come, not just to ride, but to learn in detail about all the work that goes into caring for animals, to learn how to deal with responsibility--really to learn about life. Rattlebox Nature Center is a gem, hidden the rough! We are so thankful to have Valerie in our lives, and for our children to be exposed to the wonderful values she promotes.

Cannot say enough about how special Miss Valerie and Rattlebox have been to our daughter. Camp and lessons are always a treat. Best part -- Miss Valerie truly teaches the children to have compassion toward all the animals and critters, and she shows the children how special it is to care for them. The children are not at Rattlebox to simply observe or just play with the animals. Whether it be the ponies, bunnies, turtles, birds, hamsters, etc. -- the children are shown to look after and take care of all the animals and critters as part of the Rattlebox experience. Awesome.
