Check our what an awesome job this young man did for Sandoway! This Eagle Scout project was completed today by Sebastian Giddings. He made Sandoway a compost bin that is placed in our garden so we can compost our uneaten fruits and vegetables. He also made an owl box that can be viewed from outside the nocturnal and microscope rooms as well as a rain barrel that has been placed on the north east entrance of the building. These are all great teaching tools and the staff is eager to start using them! We will be working on signage soon, but wanted you all to see what a great job he did. #Sandowaydiscoverycenter #science #conservation #nature #animals #sea #sharks #delray #delraybeach #florida #familyfriendly #kidfriendly #familyfun
