Now open at the Museum through September 21, 2014
Two beloved American icons come to life in the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum’s new educational, interactive exhibit for children, Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home, created in collaboration with the
U.S. Forest Service.
The exhibit encourages families to spend time together outdoors and inspires children to discover and care for the natural resources that sustain our world – our home sweet home. Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl guide visitors through urban, woodland and stream settings featuring a variety of educational activities (presented in English and Spanish), props, costumes and puppets that underscore the importance of protecting ecosystems, as well as highlighting ways to reduce, reuse and recycle resources. Exhibit activities will be especially engaging for children ages 2 – 8, providing young children with open-ended play opportunities that help build fundamental academic and social skills.
