Explore! An Ecosystem Near You

ImageKids can explore the web of life from 9 a.m. to noon, March 31-April 3 at the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center. Visiting experts and museum staff lead this exciting class for kids in grades 3-5 featuring walking field trips, art lessons, and science experiments. 

“We want kids to really understand ecosystems including the one they are part of,” said museum education coordinator Selina Danko. 

Students will build a terrarium, create a doomsday vault, clone a plant, build a mini-greenhouse, study leaf pigments and conduct a plant-feeding experiment during the four-day class.

Daily walking tours feature Wenatchee’s urban landscape and river areas. Students will examine mud near the riverbank in search of footprints left behind by nocturnal animals. Water samples from different areas of the river will be collected for microscopic study.

“We will draw, paint, walk and conduct experiments while learning to use all of our senses to learn about the world around us,” Danko said. “This class will be loads of fun.”

Cost of the program is $20 per day for museum members, $25 for nonmembers. To attend all week, cost is $70 for members and $85 for nonmembers. Call 509-888-6240 or visit the museum to pay for classes.
