We are embarking on a fund-raising campaign to improve the exhibits in the nature center at Hemlock Bluffs to make them more relevant for today's demanding and technologically advanced visitor.
The exhibits in the Nature Center are a vital part of the educational program of Hemlock Bluffs. Through the exhibits, visitors learn what they can expect when they walk in the park; they learn about the how the bluffs were formed, the history of the bluffs, the different habitats and landscapes, as well as the animals and plants that call Hemlock Bluffs home.
Substantial improvements are needed to the current exhibits to make them more relevant and interactive. One of our goals is to develop new displays that will make use of current technology in describing the unique and wonderful natural features of the park. New self-teaching activity stations will allow more hands-on engagement with the park, and will enhance the educational experience for visitors of all ages. Improved technology will enable us to better serve visitors who are not physically able to walk the trails. We wish to invite visitors into the nature center to involve them in exhibits that will provoke them to learn about the park's inhabitants, resulting in their desire to protect the nature preserve and its' habitats.
