(Victor Valley)– The third in a series of Fall Into Fun family days at the San Bernardino County Museum explores California Indian tools and toys on Saturday, October 19 from noon to 4 p.m. Activities, including art making, stories, and animal encounters, are included with paid museum admission, and no reservations are necessary. The program is suitable for all ages.
“Fall Into Fun days are designed to engage families in fun learning activities,” said Jolene Redvale, the museum’s curator of education. “Our theme of California Indians invites exploration into cultures and the relationship of cultural traditions to the natural environment.”
Also scheduled in the series is a day for the dogs, “Do Canids Have Canines?” on November 9.
Visitors can also help support education programs at the museum with the purchase of a reusable, durable, decorate-it-yourself canvas bag. The bags can be purchased at the Museum Store for $5 and customized with drawings, color, and stencils at education division activity tables.
