FREE ticketed event

Learn more about your place in the world through explorations of nature and culture. Every second Saturday of the month, museum educators lead a program that combines a book reading, activities, and a chance to look more closely at the museum's collections. These programs are designed for Pre-K to 3rd grade.

What happens during a "World & Me" program?
10:30 - 10:45 a.m. - Free exploration of hands-on stations
10:45 - 11:00 a.m. - Book reading
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon - Hands-on activity

This month, we'll explore traditional textiles of Pacific Island cultures, specifically barkcloth. After a book reading of "Toakase's Tapa," families will participate in an artist-led demonstration on the process of making paper from raw materials, like mulberry tree bark. Participants will take home handmade paper that they've decorated.
