    - Look at pavement under each pavilion on way to Conservation Station and see a story. At each stop, animals and tree motifs are sculpted into walkway. At 1st pavilion, they are scattered around seemingly unaware of each other. By 2nd canopy, elements have begun to work together. At end of trail just before Station, see medallion imprinted into pathway in which pieces have come together to form poetic image of Circle of Life with all creatures of Earth intertwined with nature in a singular form, each one dependent upon others.

    - Prayer Tree is a common sight throughout Asia. Each ribbon represents a prayer left by a
    passing traveler; bells indicate answered prayers. It is belief that removing ribbons will invalidate them so they are left in place until they are tattered and simply wither away just like in real Asia.

    - Chester & Hester turned gas station into store selling everything Dino - look for gas pump, phone numbers around phone, etc.
