The new addition is geared towards expanding capacity to local kindergarten classes and larger school groups.
"Well, this is going to be really wonderful for the kids, you know, right now we're dealing with the space we have," said Mike Reed, Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary Director. "We have to turn kids away from this program which we don't want to do. It is just so good for them, they come back out of this program and are so self confident."
The new addition is expected to cost around $2.5 million and is funded mostly by donations. It's expected to be complete by early 2019.
