Denton, Nebraska, 2014
Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center is an 808-acre tallgrass prairie nature preserve located in Nebraska. InterActive Group worked with the center to develop a visitor experience that enlivens visitor senses, connects them to the unique tallgrass prairie, and inspires them to engage with the natural world. The center also wanted to move beyond the typical strategy of static displays and dioramas common in nature centers. To realize that vision, InterActive Group has developed a hands-on exhibit experience to tell the story of the tallgrass prairie through the perspectives of the people and creatures who live there. Exhibit areas include:
- Conserving, Interpreting, Living On, Studying, and Discovering the Prairie
- The historical perspective, including wagon ruts leftover from the Oregon Trail
- Orientation experience with interactive maps
- Kids learning zone
All exhibits were designed to be as "green" as possible, making extensive use of sustainable materials, energy-efficient components, and low-polluting paints and finishes.
