Written by 

out naturecenterA whole lot of people visited the WNC Nature Center last year. The Friends of the WNC Nature Center report that 107,949 people visited the Nature Center in 2013, a record-breaking attendance.

Last year also saw the completion of several projects and developments at the Nature Center, including a new red wolf boardwalk and viewing area, an improved red wolf habitat and the addition of a black ant exhibit in Appalachian Station.

Also, several new play features for kids were added, including an oversized bog turtle, a new “barn chores” play area in the North Carolina Farm, and the Arachnid Adventure climbing playground near the wolf habitats.
