Duck flies South! Join Debby the Duck as she flies through the seven Coastal Lagoons featured in our current exhibit. Docent Greg Kolar created this interactive story “There’s no Place Like Home”, for young school children. The story guides children to the interpretive art created for all seven local lagoons. Ask at the front desk for the story cards and help our friend find her way home!
