Helen Schuler Nature Centre reopens with two new exhibits
With yesterday’s relaunch of the “Open for Summer Plan”, Stage 2 included the reopening of entertainment venues, including the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Along with the reopening, two new exhibits will be on display for the community to see. Curtis Goodman, Resource Development Coordinator at Helen Schuler, says they are excited to have people check out the new exhibits after being closed for six months.
“The Built for the Grasslands is a really neat exhibit looking at the wildlife species in our own backyard. As part of the grassland biome we have some amazing adaptive species that are perfect for here and this exhibit takes you through and looks at some of those adaptations and what makes these species remarkable and how they are able to thrive in this environment.”
“In our Community Art Gallery, we have a brand new exhibit by Elaine Henderson, a local artist, it’s called Landscaping Wilderness, and it is a fantastic mixed media installation that has some really beautiful landscapes to explore and get lost in,” added Goodman.
The Nature Centre will be open Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m, admission is by donation.
