Hanson receives North Carolina Environmental Education Certification

Published 3:38pm Monday, June 24, 2013

Hanson collaborated on the re-design of a live animal display room and related displays at the FENCE Center. Hanson explains, “These animals were living in the basement of FENCE’s nature center with no natural lighting and it was hard for the public to even know they were there. New enclosures and structures were built and lighting became more natural. I believe our FENCE animal friends are happier. The “touch feel” room got a face lift and is now inviting for all to come visit.”

The public is welcome at FENCE Center every day of the year from dawn to dusk.

The animal exhibit and touch-feel room is open by appointment. FENCE offers hiking, bird watching, a complete riparian habitat, an event venue, short-term apartment rentals and a large equestrian venue.
