Museum hosts free family day
Want to perfect your log-rolling skills?
The Washington County Museum invites families to a free Family Day on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., to learn about one of Oregon's most dangerous and dirty jobs: Logging.
Sit in a logging cookhouse, learn logger lingo, practice rolling logs across the museum floor, and make some forest-inspired paper crafts to take home. Visitors are encouraged to bring used paper from home to recycle into paper crafts.
Family Day is sponsored by Stimson Lumber and Beaverton Bakery and runs in conjunction with the museums current exhibit, "Timber in the Tualatin Valley," which showcases stories, artifacts and history about local logging.
Embrace your inner lumberjack/jill.
The museum is located at 17677 N.W. Springville Road, Portland, on the PCC Rock Creek campus.
