Renovated MACNC!

The hard work is paying off. The exterior of our iconic home is close to being done, notice the new windows and our former patio has been enclosed. We haven't moved back in yet but don't worry the trails are open and we're still providing great programming out of our temporary home in the Nature Center Garage located in the parking lot. Check out the progress of our beloved home in the video below and our Photo Gallery.
