Carolina Wildlife repairs

Carolina Wildlife, the Museum’s oldest exhibit area, is closed for a few weeks while we take care of a bunch of maintenance work. Numerous repairs to exhibits along with some painting and carpeting changes are underway. The next few weeks will be interesting behind the scenes as we manage the work- and the animals.
