Jasper County Conservation Director Keri Van Zante points out to the crowd where the future Jasper County Environmental Education Center will be located during Thursday’s walk and talk event. The center is estimated to cost $2.9 million, and Van Zante expects it to be a tourist attraction. “After 25 years of talking, it’s time to do it,” Van Zante told the crowd.
