Forever Forest teaches children and adults how their everyday lives are connected to forests, through the ways they live, work, and play. It is the result of an official partnership with the Hardwood Forest Foundation and Omaha Children’s Museum established to help transform the educational kit, The Truth About Trees, into an immersive and engaging learning experience.

Forever Forest includes areas focused on forest life and sustainable harvesting; lumber transportation; and products made from wood. Exhibit pieces include a treetop climber with slide; a kid-size replica of a Union Pacific engine and railcar to show how products move across the country; mini grapple skidders; a pretend saw mill; microscopes; and a miniature home under construction in which children can help finish by adding siding, molding and other details.

Looking for a fun birthday party idea for your child? See our Birthday Parties at The Museum webpage for more details. Currently booking special Enchanted Forest themed parties. Contact Stephanie Shaak for details at 610.371.5850 x234 or email stephanie.shaak@readingpublicmuseum.org.

Forever Forest is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Hardwoods Development Council in cooperation with the Allegheny Hardwood Utilization Group, Keystone Wood Products Association, Northern Tier Hardwood Association and the Pennsylvania Forest Products Association.
