The Museum is excited to welcome back its award-winning educational
traveling exhibit, Smokey Bear and Woodsy
Owl: Home Sweet Home! Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl will encourage visitors to
be active explorers and stewards of the land – our home sweet home.
Families can explore the exhibit’s Great Forest,
Urban Forest, and connecting bridge and stream as they learn about the value of
conservation, safety when playing outdoors, the water cycle, animal life,
related careers and more. Exhibit activities underscore the importance of
protecting ecosystems as well as ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. In the
forest, families can explore the ranger’s station, lookout tower, campsite,
forest trail and Woodsy’s puppet theater. A pretend home and backyard setting
encourage children to make eco-friendly decisions each day. The exhibit’s
pretend stream serves as a transition between the city and forest, and
introduces concepts of interdependence and protecting natural resources.
Free with regular admission.
Museum hours of operation are Mondays - Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from noon - 5:00 p.m.
