Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center
DescriptionHow do you tell the story of a unique natural environment that both speaks to its rarity and is relevant to today’s many visitors? Through highly realistic and durable exhibits. At Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center, visitors discover the fascinating natural history of one of the world’s largest remaining pine barrens. Through hands-on interactives, realistic animal and plant models, a dynamic theater experience, and numerous artifact cases, visitors engage with the area’s unique natural world. A 25-foot Pitch Pine Tree model dramatically hangs from the ceiling, forming an immersive focal point at once realistic and full of wonder. All materials used in the exhibits are sustainable, meeting LEED standards and providing an exemplar for a community engaged in environmental stewardship.
