RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The Raleigh skyline will be getting an organic addition to celebrate a milestone in construction work on a new research center. The Nature Research Center is expected to open to the public in 2012. It's an 80,000-square-foot addition to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. On Monday, a ceremony will be held at the site in downtown Raleigh. A live Eastern Red Cedar tree will be placed on top of the building's highest point. The tree is a traditional symbol of good luck. When it opens, the new center will be dedicated to bringing cutting-edge scientific research into the public eye. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
