Adopt a Critter logoYour Adopt-A-Critter plaque will be an enduring fixture of Outside In. Donations help care for our animals and ensure Academy educators have the tools they need to provide incredible hands-on learning experiences for visitors like you.

Adopt-A-Critter plaques are available in two sizes and three fun critter shapes: Bunny, Turtle, or Fish. Use your plaque to honor someone special by inscribing your child’s name or family name. You could also recognize a favorite Academy animal, a beloved pet, or commemorate a birthday with a special message. The possibilities are endless!
