“This center has been a long time coming, and will definitely enhance our visitor’s experience to the park,” said Cascade Sector Superintendent Lori Martin. “It will introduce our visitors to the things that make this place special, from its unique flora and fauna, geology, cultural history and recreational opportunities. I am especially interested in seeing our visitors utilize the science lab area which is designed to offer a chance for hands on exploration.”
