Live Room & "Dead" Room (Taxidermy)

We are lucky to have a valuable collection of taxidermy animals -all from Maryland!  It is on loan from AACC and include many rare animals.  Children have time to see animals up close.

​Students spend time in the Live Room where they may hold and touch some of the animals.  Most of the animals are from the area.
