Together, we will construct Discover Through Time,

a permanent exhibit that will invite visitors on a historic journey through the region’s ecological biomes.

Full-sensory environments will simulate the biome’s climate, humidity, and geological features.

  • Inland Sea 
  • Ancient Pleistocene Grassland
  • Woodlands Spruce Forest
  • Modern Grassland. 

This new space is more than a static exhibit. It features:

  • Breakout spaces with learning opportunities
  • Reading nooks
  • 30+ species of animals
  • Hands-on exploration activities
  • Life Science Observation Lab 
  • State-of-the-art mezzanine classroom space on a second-story level overlooking the West Wing.

All funds raised during the Panhandle Gives campaign will go towards funding this exhibit, and we hope you will choose to support the Don Harrington Discovery Center for this year’s Panhandle Gives

Your gift of any amount invests in our vision to spark curiosity and inspire lifelong learning through this new permanent exhibit.
