Unit Activity Descriptions


Our Nature Center is aimed at one thing: Information. We want you to stop by for only 15 minutes and have a boat load of stuff to tell your friends! We have posters, displays, animals and even books! Everyone loves a good read, but make sure to take a look at our special instruments. They open up a whole new world of discovery, whether it’s in the sky or right in front of you.

Special Requirements
