Senior day at the World Forestry Center

Seniors admitted free on Oct. 24


Seniors 62 years and older will be treated to a discounted admission at the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum during Senior Day on Oct. 24 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This year’s fiesta theme will include lively music, bingo with prizes and a snack of nachos with cheese.

The event encourages seniors to explore the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum with their family, friends and peers. Guests will view the exhibit “Timberrr! A Nostalgic Look Back at Working in the Woods” through vintage photographs, antique tools and a rare motion picture film.

The museum offers interactive exhibits that engage visitors to learn about forests and environmental stewardship. Visitors can take a simulated white water raft ride, try their smoke jumping skills or see the forests from a bird’s-eye-view on the canopy bridge.

The World Forestry Center Discovery Museum is located at 4033 S.W. Canyon Road, in Portland.

The event is open to individuals and groups, but groups of 10 or more are encouraged to pre-register by calling 503-488-2147 or visiting worldforestry.org.
