Mission Statement

The Forest Heritage Center Museum's mission is to educate, enourage and inform students, institutions, as well as the general public, of the history and deveopment of our forests and the importance and impact of our timber heritage; and to aid, promote, sponsor, encourage and finance research for further development of our nation's forests.

Description

The Forest Heritage Center Museum was founded in 1975 by a group of concerned citizens for the purpose of informing the public about forestry in the South and creating a forestry museum to explain the past and explore the future.

Though focused on forestry, our museum has also been focused on art. Our educational forestry message is conveyed through a series of 14 large acrylic dioramas/murals painted by well-known Smokey Bear artist, Harry Rossoll.

In 2010, the Forest Heritage Center Museum was recognized by the Senate's Concurrent Resolution 35 as the "Wood Art Capital of Oklahoma."

Our location and proximity to the very popular Beavers Bend State Park has contributed greatly to the seucess of our outreach programs.
