Walk through the doors and explore! There is so much to do, let me name a few. Use the binoculars to view a variety of birds and listen to the birds inside through the newly added speakers(so cool!).  Open a cubby to find furs, puzzles, blocks, shells, antlers, mussels, fossils, skulls, tree ID, feathers and more!  Learn about animals through taxidermy(a huge bird selection) as well as live rescued animals(they have tadpoles right now, we have been watching their transformation).   This is only the beginning, my oldest says we are into nature and this is a great place to learn.

彪heck out the variety of rocks in our area, open the slats to discover animals in the different kinds of forests, and weeds to trees on one side of the center

On the other side, design a bird with beaks and feet, then see the birds in the lake.
