Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology

Celebrate Earth Day at the Museum

Earth Day

Extend your Earth Day celebrations to the weekend at the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology.  

Make pollinator art (bees, butterflies and bats!) and plant your own milkweed seed to take home to provide habitat for Western Monarch Butterflies, whose numbers have dwindled by 99% in recent years. 

While you’re here, explore one of the museum’s three student-created exhibitions with themes of climate education, traditional ecological knowledge and social justice.
