They do have a website.  You'd never guess it, though!  
www.tennis.org is the address.  I also have some Snappy-ized pictures
from my trip there available on my web page at 

I visited in early August, 1997, and found it a great place to see 
native (and non-native) fish and amphibians--and turtles, the special
emphasis at the time.  There weren't a lot of plants, however.
