Testimonial Dear Eco Adventures Team, My family came in for a feeding frenzy on Saturday, June 13th, and I just wanted to thank you all for making it such an incredible experience! Ms. Amanda and Ms. Jessica were absolutely amazing! They were super knowledgeable, and took the time at each station to let us really enjoy and appreciate each animal! They were also extremely patient and kind with my children, especially when guiding them in holding and feeding the animals. My kids left on Saturday with huge smiles on their faces, and they are inspired now more than ever to work with animals when they get older! This experience was such a highlight and bright spot amid all the changes and things they've had to miss out on, and Ms. Amanda and Ms. Jessica are what made this such a wonderful memory for our family. Thank you all again for everything!!!! Sincerely, Amanda Smith
