Migration is a natural phenomenon: birds go north in the summer, south for the winter; monarch butterflies migrate across the continent to California or Mexico; mammals will migrate only to follow their prey; humans migrates as well, searching for hospitable environments to grow and prosper. We seek the safest and best.

Our theme for this exhibit is migration--what it means to us, has meant to past generations, and how it shapes the future for generations yet to come.
