New Nature Station Spring Group Program - Fine Feathered Friends-Explore bird adaptations during this interactive Nature Station program! Students will observe a live owl up close, work in groups to create their own bird, and learn about other animal adaptations during a scavenger hunt. Recommended - 3rd-6th grades. $3 per participant.
Our living history farm recalls the lifestyles and customs of a family living between the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers-the dominant features of this area. A setting of farm animals, antique furnishings, historic log buildings, and traditional activities re-creates a rich tradition of farming from the mid-19th century. Interpreters, dressed in period clothing, bring the farm to life as they demonstrate agricultural skills and work habits that changed the area's landscape.
Golden Pond Planetarium
Located within the Golden Pond Visitor Center, the 84-seat planetarium offers a variety of astronomy programs for audiences of all ages. Visual effects projected onto the planetarium's 40-foot dome allow you to sail through our solar system or explore the depths of a black hole.
Elk & Bison Prairie
Enjoy watching elk, bison, and other wildlife species as you drive through a prairie that represents a landscape once typical of western Kentucky and Tennessee. Interpretive stops along the route tell the story of the land, vegetation, wildlife, and people who inhabited Kentucky's barrens.
