Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage host Funday Sundays in Feb.

BUFORD -- Sundays just became a little more fun -- and educational. Throughout the month of February, the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center has decided to allow the public into the building for Funday Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m., when the center is usually closed.

"We are so excited to open our doors on Sundays in February. We think it is great to give the community another opportunity to see what the GEHC is all about," said Jason West, director of programming and development. "We have so many great programs and exhibits happening at the same time. Sundays will definitely be fun days."

Visitors will be able to explore the three exhibits a the center. New to the Heritage Center, the e-Planetarium is an exhibit where the public can get a glimpse of the world of space. Another exhibit available to visitors is Petticoats and Slide Rules, which highlights the important role of pioneering women in engineering. Attendees also have their last chance to explore the Living in Space exhibit, which allows people to become International Space Station crew members for a day as they engage in astronaut activities.
