July 14th Kick-off 2nd Saturdays for Families at V V Museum

By: Simone Graham – Editor: A new series of family programs, “Second Saturdays at the Victor Valley Museum”, kicks off on Saturday, July 14 from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. These monthly programs focus on Victor Valley Museum collections and exhibits, with an emphasis on High Desert cultural and natural history. The July 14 program encourages kids and families to take close looks at desert plants in the museum garden, using watercolors to paint their observations. The activity is included in museum general admission, and all materials are supplied to participants. The activities are drop-in; no reservations are required.

Upcoming Second Saturdays at the Victor Valley Museum will include art-making activities, water conservation gardening, rocks and minerals, reptiles, and fossils. Plans include an event coinciding with the California Shakedown, another creating a water conservation garden, an event making a box camera to practice cyanotype photography, and an exhibit featuring a photographic essay on the infamous Blue Cut Fire of 2016.

Second Saturdays at the Victor Valley Museum and the County Museum’s other exciting events and exhibits reflect the effort by the Board of Supervisors to achieve the Countywide Vision by celebrating arts, culture, and education in the county, creating quality of life for residents and visitors.
