EcoAdventures is an Education, Enrichment, and Conservation organization located in Millersville, Maryland that offers hands-on ecological education to people of all ages. Owned by National Geographic herpetologist, Dr. Brady Barr, and marine biologist, Mei Len Sanchez Barr, EcoAdventures offers many enriching programs at our 3800 square foot facility where our guests experience the sounds and sights of our simulated rainforest and our mysterious underwater cave discovery room. And, just outside our backdoor, lies the neighboring Severn Run Wildlife Area- 1700 acres of pristine wilderness ready to be explored.

Then get ready, set, …Go!  Who will win in a box turtle race…  It’s everything you need to know…so to speak…about those critters with a shell and a beak!
