The Little Nature Museum was the best kind of learning opportunity for my grandchildren who were visiting from Washington State. They had so much fun browsing through the thoughtfully prepared exhibits, enjoying the specimens and playing nature games, they learned about nature "naturally." In my opinion, that is the best and most effective way for children to develop their interest in and appreciation of the natural world. Sandra Martin and her dedicated volunteers work hard to provide opportunities for children to grow in their knowledge of the natural world. Such opportunities are becoming all too rare. This is a "little" museum in name only. It makes a big and important impact on children.
