Climbing Higher

A View from the Summit

We gratefully acknowledge donors to Climbing Higher: a $3.9 million campaign that supported the creation of Hideaway Woods, Into the Mist, the Woodland Classroom building, and Earth Moves.

Thanks to their generosity, the Museum of Life and Science will offer unique environments for nature and science learning to children and families for generations to come!
