Get up close and personal with some amazing animals!

The Is It Local? exhibit offers visitors a chance learn about different species up close through taxidermy. The majority of the species on display are local to this area, but a few of them never lived here or moved away thousands of years ago. Visitors can explore each species’ relationship to the local landscape using the hands-on “Local or Not?” interactives, and learn who’s who in the forests and wetlands around the nature center.

The list below contains a small sample of the species you’ll find in the Is It Local? exhibit:

  • Moose
  • Bobcat
  • Mountain lion
  • Muskox
  • Fishers
  • Black bear
  • And more!
