How Does It Grow?
is an active, outdoor/indoor environmental exhibit where visitors engage in ecological studies and explore environmental issues by visiting a native plant garden, woodland area, pond and a research pavilion. Through these and several other areas, visitors can participate in diverse hands-on activities such as stream bed creation, insect collecting, leaf rubbings, footprint identification, and more!
Visitors may also participate in always changing programming that includes things such as nature journals, water quality testing, decomposition observations, soil type explorations, home environmental awareness inventory logs, bird feeders and many more activities that can be used in the exhibit areas or even taken home for further backyard experiences!
Plus, almost all of EcoStation is now powered by solar energy - come see how we're using itand learn more about solar power in an exhibit developed in partnership with industry expert Standard Renewable Energy.
