Happening at the Yellowwood State Forest park office, Indiana Woods on Wheels is a traveling interactive exhibit that provides information about the Hoosier state’s most renewable resource, our forests. Visitors will feel as if they have been transported to the woods as soon as they enter—the interactive displays will immerse the senses while covering key topics in forestry. Navigating through the exhibit takes visitors from learning about the benefits of forest management and how it supports Indiana’s native wildlife to the history of Indiana’s forests and the many industries that rely on our magnificent hardwoods to produce the products we all know and love.
Woods on Wheels has a target audience of 4th- 6th grade students but includes information for high school students eager to explore forestry career options, landowners needing expertise, policymakers looking to inform their decisions, educators, and fact-seeking members of the public. Along with having beneficial information for all within the exhibit, our Woods on Wheels forester will be there to answer questions, offer more in-depth information, and provide science-based forestry lessons to students!
