State officials said construction is progressing on a $5 million, 9,500-square-foot wildlife education center near Alum Creek in Kanawha County. The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources said in late February the Claudia L. Workman Wildlife Education Center is expected to open to the public later this summer. The center will feature a 1,500-gallon tank with native fish, educational space, an amphitheater and exhibits that focus on the area’s ecology and wildlife species native to West Virginia. The center is located at the Forks of Coal State Natural Area, and sits on a 105-acre tract of land that was donated to the agency. Bird watching areas and hiking trails also will be included on the property.
