The Sanford Museum, with help from Cherokee County Naturalist Ginger Vietor and two local businesses, has established a new permanent exhibit at the lower level of the museum.
The "Feet You Might Meet" exhibit has pelts of a coyote, a beaver, a raccoon, a badger, a red fox and a river otter. There will eventually be a mountain lion pelt. Information on the animals is provided in the exhibit.
At a table, built and supplied by Cherokee Lumber, visitors to the exhibit can make stamped impressions of the paws of the various animals native to the area.
Holton Custom Signs provided the sign for the exhibit.
