This gallery reflects the geological and biological diversity of our state, from the mountains to the Piedmont and coastal plain. Walk inside a 20 foot tree to see the rings; climb up through the inside and slide back down to the bottom! Younger children can practice fishing in our simulated stream, while all visitors can see live specimens in our trout tank. In addition to a beaver lodge and aquariums, visitors can examine rock and mineral collections and search for our state’s plants and animals artistically rendered in our giant mural.
