Did you know the Texas Forestry Museum, located at 1905 Atkinson Dr., Lufkin, has a varied calendar of summer events for the benefit of our local kids, from kindergartners up to 12 year old?  

For the month of June alone, the selection of activities is pretty spiffy.

On Tuesdays, starting on June 6, and running through August 8, the Texas Forestry Museum is hosting "Tuesdays at 2" where kids will enjoy a story time and a craft.  The activities will be different each subsequent Tuesday, and you can you can sign your kid or kids up to participate for the low, low, cost of FREE!
