Asheville, NC – The WNC Nature Center will be closed to the public Monday, January 30 through Wednesday, February 1, 2012 and Monday, February 20 through Wednesday, February 22, 2012 for the annual Workday Program.
As in previous years, the Workday Program allows the WNC Nature Center staff and volunteers to work on a variety of projects without disturbing the animals or the guests. This year, the WNC Nature Center staff plans to add a new climbing structure in the popular cougar exhibit, renovate an outdated recycling storage area into a new children’s garden, and clean out the old elephant house to create more storage space.
The Nature Center invites volunteers to assist in these enhancements. If you are interested or would like additional information please call Keith Mastin, Curator of Education at (828) 259-8082.
