"I love this place!"
- recent exclamation by a young visitor

Teaching science to children matters. Our future depends on it. Children naturally love to explore, to discover, and to figure things out on their own. CuriOdyssey helps them experience being the natural scientists they already are. With your support, we can offer them groundbreaking, interactive science exhibits, deeply memorable school and public programs, and unforgettable encounters with native California animals. Thank you!

  • 135,000 visitors
  • 11,000 children participating in education programs
  • 100 live, mostly native California, rescue or non-releasable animals
  • Dozens of unique, interactive science exhibits
  • 173 volunteers who gave 14,235 hours last year
