The Texas Forestry Museum’s Fun in the Forest After Dark


Lufkin – The Texas Forestry Museum invites all Kids’ Club members to attend Fun in the Forest After Dark on Tuesday, February 9 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. At the event, kids will learn how to build a fire safely from Texas A & M Forest Service employee, Jan Amen. They will also make a craft and ask Donna Work, a Texas A & M Forest Service employee, any questions they may have about nocturnal animals. Children will have the chance to enjoy a hotdog dinner around a campfire. Lastly, the kids and their families will be able to take a night walk on the museum’s Urban Wildscape Trail. A special thank you goes to our event sponsor Timber Pro Forest Service for making this event possible.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by Friday, February 5, 2016 at 936-632-9535. Also, remember to wear closed toe shoes and bring a flashlight. If you are not a current Kids’ Club member you may join for just $5.00. You must be a member to attend this event.
