2nd Annual Hardwood Tree Museum Day Provided Plenty of Hands-On, Family-Friendly Activities
For the second month in a row, the Hardwood Tree Museum held a public event in conjunction with the Janet Huckabee Nature Center at Chaffee Crossing. And once again, the weather was beautiful!
The second annual Hardwood Tree Museum Day was held November 8 and 9 as a celebration of local hardwoods. Outside, visitors were greeted by local woodturners demonstrating their craft…

Inside, there were displays and exhibits showcasing locally created wood products, and several presentations were shown.

There were also plenty of kid-friendly games and educational activities…
A new event that proved popular was a kid-only trail tour by former forester and Museum board member Bob Gillson. This guided talk was conducted along the museum’s recently dedicated Herman J. Udouj Memorial Trail.
