PHOTO: The Texas Forestry Museum's mission is to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret objects, papers and photographs which pertain to the natural and cultural history of the people, places, and products and benefits associated with the forest, forestry and related professions, and the forest related industries in the state of Texas. The education of the public, from pre-school through senior adult, about the heritage of forestry and sound forestry practices in Texas is a priority of the museum.
We are proud to support the Texas Forestry Museum and present them with a grant to help their cause! Thank you for serving our community! #JLL #ThankfulThursday #community
