|Explore Central Washington |
Explore Central Washington is a new summer field trip program designed to get kids and parents excited about our region's history, natural resources and diverse cultures. Through a series of 15 field trips that reach from Toppenish to Vantage, we'll discover the people and places that make our corner of the world unique.
Join the adventure! See petrified trees, a prehistoric mammoth tusk and a bald eagle. Hop aboard a trolley, step inside a teepee and ride on a locomotive caboose. Learn an old-fashioned way to make butter and explore modern technologies for harnessing wind energy. Listen to traditional Native American legends, gaze at the stars and see a rare wildflower that grows only here, in Central

Wonders of Light
16th Annual Rotary Storyfest
Yakima Valley Museum, May 27, 2011
Nancy Stewart and MaryLee Sunseri return to the museum with a storytelling and song program called Wonders of Light, designed to help students learn about natural and artificial light. From starlight to sunlight, candlelight to neon, light is part of our everyday lives.
Students will learn about the role light has played in the history of Yakima, including agriculture and urban development, and how light can be used in the future in energy conservation and new technologies. Nancy and MaryLee will present both traditional songs and many which were written specifically for this venue.
Children and their families are invited to a special public performance on Friday evening at 7:00 P.M. Reservations are not needed for the Friday evening performance.
