If you've ever visited Burlington's ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, you've probably come face to face with slippery and slimy creatures such as 40-pound lake sturgeon, red-eyed tree frogs, spiny softshell turtles and eastern ratsnakes. Curious about who keeps these creatures happy and healthy? ECHO's animal experts recently began leading behind-the-scenes tours for groups of up to 10 people. "This is an awesome new opportunity for our guests to get a rare taste of walking in the shoes of someone that performs animal care," says environmental exhibit specialist Jenn Dean.

Behind-the-scenes tours last 45 minutes and cost $75 for up to 10 people, in addition to museum admission. For more information click here.
