Exhibit Description from the Museum of Science, Boston Website:

"Get a feel for New England's natural environment with these classic dioramas. In addition to these windows on wide-ranging landscapes, the exhibit's model birds, casts of feet, antlers, beaks and other touchable elements make this an interactive experience for curious visitors. 

Observe deciduous woods, salty beaches, ocean cliffs and other New England habitats, and see how they look, sound, feel, and smell. Visitors can hear the sound of a beaver smacking its tail against the water in alarm, and understand how the adaptations of New England wildlife resemble human tools.

Represented here are the Katahdin woods, the Maine coast, Crane's Beach, Wildcat Mountain, New Hampshire's Squam Lake, and the Green Mountains of Vermont. All are located in New England within a 150-mile radius, but they are quite varied in their climate, vegetation, and wildlife."
