McMahon Center in Crestview seeks science classes integration

Published: Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 01:51 PM.

An annual Earth Day program hosted by the Crestview Public Library's youth program draws more than 30 children and parents to the center each April.

"The children are just amazed by everything there — even the smallest things," youth librarian Heather Nitzel said. "Mr. McMahon does such a great job, especially with the little guys.

"At the museum, everything is at their level where they can see and touch. At that age, touching is very important. It's very kid-friendly."

The park is open daily. The museum is open by appointment. There is no charge to visit either facility.

"It's a really peaceful place," Nitzel said. "Even for an adult, it'd be just a peaceful place just to slip in there and have lunch."
