Adventure awaits at Forever Forest, a nationally traveling exhibit that explores how we use the forest to live, work, and play in harmony. Kids can help construct a mini home by adding wood siding, flooring and more; explore a tree-top climber, and climb aboard a realistic kid-sized replica of a Union Pacific train engine.
By exploring the realities of forests through play, families will learn about sustainability, selective harvesting, transportation needs, and the everyday products we use made from trees.
Forever Forest opens September 15 at The Magic House. The exhibit is free with regular admission through January 7, 2019.
