A permanent touch screen exhibit, Nature Calls©, was
custom made for Patuxent by Inter-score Interactive, Inc.
Visitors can quickly find information about the various birds, mammals,
amphibians, and insects commonly found on the refuge and nearby
areas. There is also some “Fun Stuff” to entertain and
educate all ages.
Nature Calls© features photographs and sound recordings of
each species as well as migration and habitat data. It reveals animated
migration for both North and South American continents and connects
that information to birds’ local arrival and departure dates
on the Refuge. The user can quickly determine if a specific species
should be present on the Refuge at any given time. The exhibit also
features high resolution satellite imagery of the Refuge with its
trails, other features and habitat types.
