While supplies last

Investigate the world of trees with us! Chat with visiting foresters, see how wood was used in the past in the Prairietown carpentry shop and visit with Animalia, who bring tree-dwelling animals for a visit.  We have plenty of trees on our Nature Walk to mingle with too. Then take home a tree of your own - selection may include Bald Cypress, Chinkapin Oak and Persimmon.
