A Backyard Adventure Awaits You

3 Aug

There’s a hidden gem in Volusia County. One of the Making a Difference stories this week highlighted how Lyonia Environmental Center is helping educate the community about our fragile local ecosystems.

Check out the story here: Making a Difference: Lyonia Environmental Center

It was surprising to find out this center has been in Deland at the library complex for three years, but workers at the center say one of the first things they always hear from visitors is, “We didn’t know this was here!”

At Lyonia, there are lots of hands on displays and creatures that kids can get into and some really incredible facts that will even amaze the adults. It’s definitely a place where you don’t have to keep saying, “No, no, don’t touch that” quite as much.

If you want to check it out, here’s Lyonia’s website and Facebook.

Have fun with these last few days of summer break!

See you in the morning!
