http://michaelsand.com/archives/items/Mass-Society-Prevention-Cruelty-to-Animals-Macomber-Farm-n041.jpg

"Visitors arriving at the MSPCA's Macomber Farm must pass through the Visitor Center, which houses an historical exhibit that describes The MSPCA Then…And Now, designed by Michael Sand. The Society also engaged Sand to completely redesign the existing Nature Center exhibits, which now include a dozen new participatory devices, challenging youngsters to find solutions to problems that relate to animal morphology, habitats, and behavior."
