Northern Iowa nature center to get $386K in renovations

MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — A northern Iowa nature center is getting $386,000 in renovations this year.

The Globe Gazette reports that the Lime Creek Nature Center announced plans to replace the center’s original main-level exhibits with “museum-quality,” ”interactive” and “durable” ones that will highlight the area’s natural resources and the unique features and history of the Lime Creek Conservation Area. It’s also designed to provide an engaging educational experience for visitors.

The nature center opened in 1984 and was one of the first in Iowa. It features displays that include mounted animals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and natural resources as well as an auditorium and library.

Managers say some of the center’s current displays are outdated and deteriorating.
