There have been a couple of early 2015 announcements about the exciting new addition to Selah, which for a lack of a better word (and always considered temporary) we have called the Science Building. But as of now it will forever be known as The Margaret Bamberger Research and Education Center.
The new building will be located directly across the driveway of the Center, our conference room/dormitory style building that has been used for educational purposes and retreats since 1987. It will have 2,500 interior square feet with a patio of an additional 500 square feet to allow for future expansion.
In June 2015, we received documented and unanimous board approval from our directors, that officially allows us to take the next steps to embark on a major capital improvement to Selah.
Part museum, part living zoo, part research lab, part classroom. This new facility will be all that and more. The Margaret Bamberger Research and Education Center is the next step in fulfilling Selah’s legacy of research and education, while still being true to our motto: Nature, Pure and Simple. Let us tell you more about it below.
