The opening saw large crowds that were there to see what the center had to offer. The first and foremost of the attractions at the PHC has to be the large open center room with wall displays and interactive activities throughout the main room.
There also is an impressive view of the Little Sioux River valley that lies to the west of the Center. But most impressive of all is the life-size bison that greets you upon entering the center. The bison stands in the center of the room, along with other taxidermy animals that are spread throughout the center display.
Once you walk through the main hall, you can step out on to the observation deck, which is poised for bird watching. Binoculars are provided.
The learning center had many display booths on hand that featured local crafts and a display of the history of O'Brien County.
The PHC features tall grass prairie ecosystem, the Mill Creek Indian culture, early settlement of the county, wildlife area including upland forest all located on the old O'Brien Glacial Trail Scenic Byway.
The location of the PHC is 4 1/2 miles southeast of Sutherland on Hwy. 10 and one mile north on Yellow Ave. For more information call 712-295-7200
