River Journey / Ridges to Rivers
Dip beneath the surface to explore the life-filled waters of Southern Appalachian streams and rivers (no fins or dive mask required). See how a single stream can provide homes for an astonishing array of colorful fish and reptiles as it descends from mountain headwaters through stony rapids, wide runs and placid pools. Pop up inside an exhibit for a snorkeler’s perspective on life at the bottom of a river before laying fingers on bona fide living fossils in a newly expanded Lake Sturgeon touch experience.
Construction Time Lapse
Watch weeks of work in just a couple of minutes as construction crews and muralist Dave Rock transform an empty space into a dynamic recreation of a mountain stream.
