Among the many important animal sanctuaries and nature preserves throughout southern California, the STAR Eco Station may be one of the smaller or less-known ones, however that doesn’t make it any less impressive or worth your time. STAR Eco Station is more of an environmental science museum as well as a rescue center for exotic wildlife. It takes in the many exotic and illegally-trafficked animals that have been confiscated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, provides them a safe home, and makes it a learning experience for all.
One visit to STAR Eco Station will showcase just how many wonderful exotic animals are there, and your kids will love all the hands-on exhibits and different ways to learn about ecology and environmentalism. The best way to enjoy your visit to STAR Eco Station is through a guided tour, led by an expert staff member. The tour will cover the habits and history of all the different rescued exotic animals, as you get to meet them up close and personal. You’ll also get to see all the exhibits that talk about the many approaches to environmentalism, with lots of hands-on activities and suggestions of how to make small changes at home that can make a big impact for the earth.
STAR Eco Station is also a great place to plan that next birthday party for your animal-loving children. From the very young to the pre-teens and teens, there is a customizable package for any birthday party. You’ll get a two hour party, the first consisting of the tour of the facility. You’ll all walk through the Station and get a lot of great hands-on time with the animals and all the education about where they come from, how they got here, and how each animal is important to the eco system. Then, it’s time to party, with another hour of pure party fun.
Make this family destination perfect by heading there in the 2013 S550 Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll love setting out in the comfort and elegance of your Mercedes-Benz, and you’ll be thrilled with the luxury as your cruise in style to your memorable day at STAR Eco Station.
