New in 2017
Visitors took photos in a giant hiking boot and learned how trees clean water in the forestry wing. They checked out fossils in the theater, climbed boulders outside on the west lawn and made water connections throughout.
Visitors enjoyed a variety of foot tapping bands and engaging presentations on our three stages.
People also got to see an underwater view of over 40 species of fish in our outdoor pond, live via webcam .
