Nature Center: Nature Education, Walk
Multiple displays fill the Nature Center. The most popular of these include the live animal displays. A visitor can see two tiger salamanders meandering through their aquarium, native fish swimming through a 180-gallon tank, and a live honeybee display. A separate room of the Nature Center holds the library and touch-and-feel section. In the library, both children’s and adult books involving nature are ready to be checked out. There are also reference books and field guides available for study. The rest of the library room is our touch section. Animal pelts, turtle shells, and snake skins are among the many things that we encourage you to pick up and examine.
