Environmental Film & Speaker Series: Canoeing the Vanishing Arctic POSTPONED

March 24, 2020 @ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Canoeing the Arctic: March 24

GUEST HEALTH & SAFETY UPDATE: To ensure that the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center remains a safe, secure, and welcoming space for all our visitors, our staff is closely following the recommendations of the Chelan-Douglas Health District and State of Washington’s emergency recommendations regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). Due to increasing concerns over large gatherings, and the recommendations of the Chelan-Douglas Health District regarding COVID-19, we are postponing this Environmental Film & Speaker event: Canoeing the Arctic. We are working to find a new date for this event, and will communicate this date as soon as possible.

The decision to postpone was not made lightly. In the end, the health and safety of the community was paramount in our decision. We hope you understand that the museum staff and board believes this is the right decision for the safety of our community.

At this time, however, the Chelan-Douglas Health District has not recommended the closure of museums or other public spaces. The Museum currently remains open to visitors during regular operating hours. Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Because our first priority is the health and well-being of our community, we have instituted sanitization measures throughout the museum facilities, including our exhibits, performance hall, and other high-traffic spaces.

If you have questions about how COVID-19 may affect upcoming programs at the Museum, please call us at (509) 888-6240 or email us at [email protected].

Join us for “Canoeing the Vanishing Arctic: Down the Hood River to the Arctic Sound”, a part of the Environmental Film & Speaker Series, exploring topics important to our community. This film is presented at the Museum in the Performance Hall. This event features a no-host bar, free popcorn, and treats.

This presentation by Andy Dappen will cover a canoe trip that local Wenatchee residents embarked on in order to explore the rapidly-changing Arctic.
