Wargo Nature Center

Wargo Nature Center installed a nature play area in 2006. One of the main obstacles in installing this area was lack of funding. To keep the price to a minimum, the area focused on naturally occurring elements. The only built component of the play area was a split rail fence which was installed as an Eagle Scout project.
