The globe being moved
Big changes coming to ECHO!
On your next visit to ECHO you will probably notice that things are starting to look a bit different. The globe has relocated to the center of the building, part of the Frog World exhibit has moved downstairs, Discovery Place will move into a temporary exhibit space while it undergoes a massive expansion upstairs, and, as of this weekend, we will be closing the “Awesome Forces” theater. While we are sad to see it go, we are so excited about what is to come. This October we open the Northfield Savings Bank Theater: a National Geographic Experience, the first and only of its kind in Vermont! We can’t wait to tell you more about this, so STAY TUNED.

It’s hard to believe the summer is already starting to wind down. Before you finalize your end-of-summer plans don’t forget about Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home! This engaging, informative, and FUN exhibit takes visitors through the woods, onto the lake, and into the ranger station to help teach about natural resources and how to use and preserve them. It was created by the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service. At ECHO until Sept. 13.

New and exciting things coming!

The changes coming to ECHO this fall and into early next year are incredible! And we cannot wait to share them with you. Discovery Place, our pre-K learn and play area, will be expanded into a much larger hands-on, interactive experience. The Northfield Savings Bank Theater: a National Geographic Experience, brings us the unique and thrilling world of National Geographic cinema. Keep your eyes peeled for an immersive project this fall we are calling Lake Brite. Thanks as always for supporting us, and keep an eye out for updates on these great initiatives.

All the best,

Phelan Fretz
