Nature Nook at Walking Mountains Science Center Begins to Take Shape

We are so exited to see the Nature Nook taking shape on campus. While the exhibits are well underway and being built in Denver, our resident painter, Mickey, is painting murals so fast we can scarcely keep up with him! In just one day he is nearly finished with the background for the life-sized beaver dam in our Beaver Experience exhibit. We'll be heading out on Friday to collect sticks for the final construction of the actual structure. Keep your eyes on the blog to watch Mickey's progress!
