Texas Forestry Museum's Summer Sylvan's teaches kids about trees

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - It was all about trees today at the Texas Forestry Museum in Lufkin as kids age six-to-ten got the chance to eat apples, make arts and crafts out of leaves and twigs, and learn where paper products come from.

It's apart of the museum's Summer Sylvan's program that introduces fun-filled environmental lessons for kids as they learn to know, love and preserve our environment.

"The reasons why we have forest practices is they are learning about the products from trees. Later on in the week we'll be learning about worms, how worms help the environment and we'll be learning about ants and about camouflage; how animals use camouflage," Rachel Collins, the director of the Texas Forestry Museum, said.

The camp is $35 for non-members, and $30 for members of the Kid's Club. The kids participate four days a week and get to share their favorite part of the camp on Friday's.
