New Gardens Open

by Ken Ham on October 2, 2009

Yesterday at 8:30 AM, the AiG staff gathered at the entrance to the new Koi pond and garden on the Creation Museum grounds—a foggy morning. AiG staff member Cecil Eggert dedicated the gardens to the glory of God. Here are some photographs:

Thanks goes to Tim Schmitt and his landscaping team for all the hard work they have put into making these gardens such a beautiful addition to our entire botanical garden for museum guests to experience. Here is a photograph of the team:

Visiting from My Hometown

Josh Williamson, a Bible college student from Brisbane, Australia (my hometown), visited the Creation Museum on Wednesday—in the photo he’s in the middle wearing the dark shirt. Josh is a friend of our geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling. In the photo, he is joined by his friend Heath from Perth in Western Australia (far right), and some friends from Indiana who made their return visit to the museum.
