The Peggy Notebeart Nature Museum opened their newest 2,500-square-foot “Exploring Trees Inside and Out” traveling exhibition. This also happens to be the last stop for this exhibit’s national tour that ran for the last 3 years.

    The exhibit is designed for families and visitors to gain some fun learning experiences and environmental education through play.“Sensation Stations” are set up where you can:

  • Become a forest creature in a real-time, animated, blue-screen flying experience.
  • Climb through the inside of a tree and then slide into a pile of leaves.
  • Touch bark, smell cedar, cinnamon and maple sap and listen to the sounds of animals that call trees home.
  • Crawl inside a giant log and experience it as a habitat for living things.
  • Play in a larger-than-life bird’s nest.
  • See light filter through leaves and listen as water moves through the roots.
  • (PCIPR Press Release)

This highly interactive exhibit is sponsored by Doubletree Hotels. You can also find more information at www.naturemuseum.org
