Outdoor Features Refreshed

Ever since an EF-1 tornado struck the area in August 2020, the woods behind the museum have been in rough shape. Thanks to the hard work of our facilities team and a grant from the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) for new trees, interpretive signage, and seating areas, our outdoor spaces have been refreshed.

The 2020 tornado left incredible damage to the museum’s outdoor space. We are re-establishing the area by planting new trees, but it will take decades to completely fill in.

Downed trees were cut to border the trail paths.
