A traveling exhibit from the Sciencenter of Ithaca, NY, featuring the world of trees!

Hang out…in two accessible indoor treehouses! Look for signs of animals that call trees home. Stomp on the Forest Sound Dance Floor to make woodpecker tapping sounds and turkey gobbles! Turn a tree into a house—and back again—using a Spin Browser. Stereo viewers show astonishing 3D photos of the smaller side of life hidden in trees. Be a responsible forester—learn about sustainable logging. Design and build a model treehouse. Be an animal tracker as you hunt for signs left by bear, raccoon and skunk!
Two accessible indoor TREE HOUSES! Children will learn about the animals that call trees home and spend time with many activity stations. Adults will enjoy the many details incorporated into the structures that will entertain and educate.
