Riggs Ward designed the 6,000-square-foot permanent exhibition, Life by Water's Rhythms, in Corolla's new Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education. The gallery features a 12,000-gallon freshwater aquarium displaying regional species of fish from the Currituck Sound; dramatic, wildlife habitat dioramas; one of the nation's largest collections of artisan-made working decoys; hands-on and computer interactives; as well as interpretive displays informing visitors of the region's centuries-old hunting and fishing heritage. Upon opening in the summer of 2006, this new facility joined the Whalehead Club historic mansion (also featuring exhibits designed by RWD) and the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in the beautiful 39-acre sound front Currituck Heritage Park.
