This year's "Christmas Tree Forest" Exhibit celebrates "American Heroes." All trees were decorated by school or community groups using only hand-made ornaments, no commercial or "artificial" ornaments are allowed on trees that competed for prizes. This is one of the most popular exhibits at the Museum each year. Just take a look at a few of the trees in this year's exhibition and you will see why. "Christmas Tree Forest" runs through January 5th, 2002.
