Temporary Exhibit"Heard but not Seen"
The temporary exhibit on display at Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center has two parts this season, both about birds. “Heard but not Seen” focuses on eight different species of the birds singing in the forest surrounding Chik-Wauk. Each bird is pictured in the panel manufactured by Split Rock Studios. Several ways to learn each bird song is included, a mnemonic and a song recording. This exhibit is designed to move to the Nature Center in 2017. I challenge you to learn the bird songs and identify these bird songs while you are hiking the trails! Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of the bird singing!
The second part is contained in the cabinet which faces out the window towards the bay. The window view includes the floating loon nest platform. The cabinet contains samples of the manufactured platform, a loon nest replica, and of course, information about loons. You’ll also be able to listen to different loon calls.
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center is open daily from Memorial Day Weekend through the third weekend of October.
