Nature Up Close and Personal Family Workshop

The Education Division at the San Bernardino County Museum will offer a workshop for families to examine skeletons, skins, furs, and feathers up close to see how these animal parts work. This workshop will be held on Saturday, May 20 from 9 a.m. to noon. The registration deadline for the workshop is Thursday, May 18.

“Families can observe and learn together about some of the tiniest parts of nature,” said Nancy Kirkwood, museum educator. “We will even scrutinize animal without bones and find out what they have instead.”

Suggested ages for the workshop are 6 years old through adults. Cost is $11 for each family member; the cost for Museum Association members is $8 per family member. Pre-registration and payment are required by May 18 at 4:30 p.m. and space is limited. Registration fees include general museum admission. A registration form is available at or at the museum’s front desk.

After the workshop, participants can also enjoy several special exhibits: “If Buckets Could Talk: Tales from the history collections,” “Head to Toe: hats and shoes in the museum collections,” “Salton Sea: lost lakes and salt dreams,” and “Hanging with the Staff.”

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays and holiday Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $6 (adult), $5 (student or senior), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free. For more information, visit
