Tom Ridge Center Nears Major Milestone

Posted: Updated:
The Tom Ridge Environmental Center is now close to reaching a major milestone. The one millionth visitor is expected to pass through the doors this summer. The center opened 8 years ago, featuring many displays showcasing the plant and animal life of the peninsula. Attendance has slowly been on the rise, with many out-of-town visitors stopping in. Assistant Park Manager Holly Best said, "I think it says a lot. People are still coming into the building. They are finding it to be a good time, and a good experience and they are coming back so that is a great thing." Visitor number one million will receive a prize basket with gifts from organizations with offices at the center, and companies that do business at the park.
