Texas Forestry Museum to host back-to-school party

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Texas Forestry Museum is closing out the summer with their annual back-to-school party.

Kids will get to make raccoon masks, learn to identify animal tracks and even make some tracks of their own, plus there will be other fun activities and food!

The event will be at the museum on Atkinson drive from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM, Thursday for kids club members and kids interested in becoming members.

Education coordinator, Kaitlin Wieseman, says, "We're going to have Donna Work with the Texas A&M Forest Service she's going to come and talk to the children about wild and domestic animals and what the difference is between wild and domestic animals are and what to do when you come across any so basically what you do if you find a baby bird who you should contact and stuff like that."

The party is free for Forestry Museum kids club members and $5 for kids who are not members.
