Horses trot down a verdant trail, winding through the tranquil woods. In the nearby training area, equestrians leap over obstacles, executing perfect hunter or English style. At Pine Trails Ranch, classes cater to riders' individual goals. The instructors can teach basic horsemanship or prepare riders for competition and everything in between. Not only are the classes diverse, but each horse brings its own personality to sessions. Some of the steeds are old and sweet, some are eager to take to jumps, and others know how to relax new riders by feeding them sugar cubes.
A ball python, bearded dragons, and three types of cockroaches have made their homes at Explorit Science Center, educating guests in an exhibit dubbed the Animal Alcove. Since 1982, the center has fostered curiosity about science and nature with hands-on exhibits like this, rather than by feeding children dry textbooks or encouraging them merely to imagine how loud the sound is when trees walk. About 55,000 people visit the center each year, enhancing their intellectual development at the miniature zoo and rotating exhibits that explore the role of science in both commonplace and whimsical natural phenomena. One popular exhibit, for example, took visitors through the local agricultural process, the interconnections between agriculture and weather, and each meal’s journey from the farm to the plate. Visitors can discover further factoids at Explorit's science lecture series, and youngsters can enroll in the center’s science-themed summer camps.
