How was your experience?
Except for the nice butterfly exhibit, this really is a place of kids. I envisioned strolling/exploring the nature space with a nice glass of wine. Well, no walking around with wine folks. Just bad bad cheap wine (we both poured our out...blech)and you could drink it only in the trivia contest room or outside on this concrete hot deck. The exhibits are kind of feable at best with mangy stuffed dead animals and exhibits in disrepair. Thanks to the drought, "nature" is shriveled up and look like a bunch of dried weeds. My suggestion would be to make the evening more adult validating...let us walk around with a beverage as responsible adults, maybe a little jazz/blues combo outside. This was you may get more members, a donation that can be used to refresh the exhibits and consider investment in circa 2012 electronic media displays and teaching enhancements.
