I enjoyed the collection of petrified logs millions of years old-- it's not something you get to see at every museum. However, I was not very impressed with the remainder of the discovery center. They did show a few informative videos, but I could not find the pygmy village that was advertised. Children, though, might find the discovery center a little more interesting. more

  • In Short
    A slide presentation on forests of the world; a simulated fire and fire lookout tower; and exhibits featuring old-growth forests, tropical rain forests, petrified forests, forest streams and more greet vistors to the center. One of the most charming things about the World Forestry Center is the giant Talking Douglas Fir, which describes how leaves turn sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into nutrients.
