Salato Wildlife center re-opening

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Salato Wildlife Education Center will offer some new exhibits when it opens for the season next week.

One teaches about eagles by allowing children to climb into a life-sized replica of a nest, according to a statement from the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Department.

Another new exhibit that will open in April is called the Bluegrass Prairie and includes a bobwhite quail aviary that allows children to pretend to hatch from an egg and hide in grass tunnels from a giant hawk.

They've also added an area that allows visitors better views of a skunk, but said not to worry - the animal can't spray people.

In addition to the new exhibits, the Salato Center in Frankfort will be more environmentally friendly when it opens Feb. 14 with new lighting and a modified heating and air conditioning system.
