COX Nature Exchange

Cox Communications Nature Exchange will be moving to Life in the Cold inside Robert J. LaFortune WildLIFE Trek. This larger space will accommodate the growing trader population and our growing natural collection.

Cox Communications Nature Exchange will be temporarily closing its doors on Nov. 3, 2019, as we work to prepare for the move and transform the space currently showcasing Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea. When Washed Ashore closes on Jan. 5, 2020, construction will begin on a bigger, better Cox Communications Nature Exchange.

Thank you for your patience as we start the process of moving. If you have any questions, please contact us at
