World of Trees Exhibit at The Klamath County Museum in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
The World of Trees exhibit provides a hands-on, interactive opportunity for both children and adults to learn about the forests of Klamath County. Museum visitors learn about the history of Kalmath County, fish and wildlife, forest management, and forest ownership of our forests as they interact with the exhibit. A main theme throughout the exhibit is the various uses of our forests and the varying perspectives of the different people that make use of them. The exhibit has been a complete success and enjoyed by many, including locals and tourists visiting the area.
A highlight of the exhibit is a log that was unearthed during excavation of a landfill near Chemult, Oregon, on May 30, 1991. The log was dubbed the “Mazama tree” after scientists determined the tree had grown before the explosion of Mount Mazama around 5,600 B.C. The explosion of Mount Mazama created the awe-inspiring Crater Lake.
