New sign for new museum
The Bandera Exotic Wildlife Museum Board of Directors recently celebrated the installation of the facility's signature sign at 267 Old San Antonio Highway, the site of the former county juvenile probation office. When completed, the museum, situated on an 8.28-acre campus, will include an International Hall, featuring a towering 17-foot giraffe; an innovative "Sensory Safari"; vignettes of mounted animals against handpainted backdrops, including, among others, a swamp, mountains, tundra and the Serengeti Plain; a small theater for lectures, classes and special video presentations; gift shop; and café with outdoor seating. Directors include, from left, Joe McMullan, Treasurer Don Giles; Sr. Director of Development Maggie Schumacher, Cindy McMullan, Secretary Genie Strickland, Chairman Emeritus Juan Infante and Chairman Sully Woodland. Directors Ken Finley, Mack Frazier and Juliet Kirchner are not pictured.
