Living Lab

Whether they fly, crawl, or climb, all animals are an important part of our region’s ecosystems. Living Lab brings you eye to eye with animals that are common to our region, but sometimes rarely seen because of their seasonality, reclusive nature, or nocturnal lifestyle habits. Visitors will learn about unique adaptations that help animals survive.
