As you enter the Zorniger Education Center's Huffman Gallery, you are greeted with a sweeping view of the Arboretum through the glass walls that line the Gallery from end to end. Afternoon sunlight filters in through the dormers, splashing across the natural dark-green slate floors. The Gallery can comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests, depending on the seating arrangement.
