Interpretive Centre in St. Leon Getting Upgrades

April 20, 2010 6:58 AM | News

The interpretive centre in St. Leon, Manitoba will soon be getting some much-needed upgrades, thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Monsanto Fund.

The investment will help to construct two new exhibits: The Wind Power Gallery and The Living Green Gallery. The power gallery will feature clean, green power with interpretive panels and a residential-sized wind generator that could potentially power the centre. The green gallery will have a three-section globe unit that will help visitors understand their impact on earth.

The new exhibits are expected to be open to the public in May.

The interpretive centre has been operating since 2002 and is the first education centre of its kind in Western Canada.

St. Leon is located about 150 km southwest of Winnipeg.
