Turn California’s Dead #Trees Into Electricity
#forests #forestry #sustainability
California’s wildfire season is off to a ferocious start, fueled by overcrowded forests that are dry from drought and by more than 66 million drought-killed trees. Firefighters have been clearing excess fuel in an attempt to protect communities, utilities and roadways, but the severity of the problem is just too much. [...] highway turnouts are being stacked with wood, and fallen trees are simply left on the forest floor because California lack...

Hands-on exhibits are designed to teach visitors about the sustainability of forests & trees.- Google
"Very cool place to take the family and learn about the PNW forests."
"The exhibits are dated and way to much reading for children."

Beautiful facility that is surprisingly interesting for both older children and adults because of hands-on exhibits. Younger children (under ~6?) might not understand the subject matter of many of the exhibits, but will still be entertained because of the hands-on nature. The parking situation is completely out of control. We had no interest in using the shuttle because it was bitter cold and we were formally dressed. After circling and circling, we finally found an open spot in front of the zoo entrance. The spots are so narrow that we had to let the passengers out before parking. There was only about 10 inches between cars. We have no idea how the people next to us were able to get into their cars and leave. We have an older car so we were OK with our doors getting banged up. My advice: Use lightrail to save yourself many headaches.

What a gem! My kids are under 5 and love this place! There is lots for them to do, it's a great price, and never as crowded as the children's museum or zoo. Would be great for older kids too, activities for all age levels.

This is very educational. Went here back in the '70's, and took my daughters here when they were young. For anyone who wants to give an educational place a low rating, don't bother. It just means that your a gamer and can't enjoy the finer things in life.

Fun museum with lots of opportunities for interactivity. I wish there was more of a giftshop! Heavy on videos, which are not the most effective way to convey information at a museum.
