The Making of Our Interactive Tablets

The Trails Center is once again teaming up with ENTOO to bring you an interactive experience here at the Trails Center.  Grab your wagon and supplies and begin your journey west!  Will you be heading to California, Oregon or the Salt Lake City?  Will you have enough provisions to last your journey?  Do you die along way or make it to the end?  Also, see if you can find items in each gallery!  We are hoping to launch these interactive tablets by late summer.
