Treehouse

Promoting saving natural resources and conservation through everyday living is the focus of the Treehouse as it engages visitors in the life cycle of a tree and the important role that a tree plays in the Earth’s ecological environment. It also touches on ecosystems, sustainability and tree products. Children feel like they have walked into the forest when entering. There are several areas inside: Slat Block Table to build structures; Grandma Willow to talk to and play a game with; Tree Slab that tells the age of the tree with rings; Paper Plane Activity Area to build a plane and launch it at a target; conservation videos; various bird sounds; and peep holes to see wildlife. Children will also delight in playing the Laser Harp!
