Thank you for an awesome Give Big 2018!

Our supporters Gave BIG by helping CMB build our outdoor Sensory Garden as part of our new outdoor exhibit – Farm to Museum. Plants to touch, taste, smell, view and hear the buzzing bugs. Sensory Gardens have proven to be helpful for stress, anxiety, and to support children with various sensory needs. Look for the new garden coming late summer 2018. There’s still time to support this amazing project! Contact our office to give to this great project.
