Museum & Buildings
Trails and Grounds open daily sunrise to sunset.
The trails and museum will be closed June 6 – 8 for private events. The North Forest Trail will remain open to the public at these times.
We’re having a painting party—and you’re invited! Bring the whole family to the museum this summer for fabulous, free, messy fun for all ages to enjoy. (Grown-ups, don’t worry—we’ll take care of the clean-up, and everything’s washable here.)
Make some friends and get inspired while we dig into three different styles of painting together. Three local artists will walk you through different art projects, helping you to make fantastic paintings of your very own. Young nature-lovers and explorers can go wild with watercolors painting the museum grounds with an activity by May We Fly (Leana Fisher), while anyone wanting to flex those creative muscles and express themselves can dig into more abstract acrylic painting by MY-T-BY-DESIGN. Or, come create architecture-inspired work in an activity by Marlie Allgood. Whatever your style, we’re bound to have something for everyone—so come on by!
