New EdVenture Program Launches at Museum

September 9th, 2014

The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is kicking off a brand new education program this September! Join us for Kid EdVentures, an hour long program that gets kids immersed in different fields through hands-on activities just like the professionals. In coordination with the ending of our Hatching the Past exhibit, this month kids will be EdVenturing into the field of paleontology to learn more about dino eggs and development by participating in a dig and using their new skills to determine what fossils they have found. This interactive program will take place on September 20 from 10:30am-11:30am and is free!


For 50 years the Hi-Desert Nature Museum has been dedicated to the process of education by exploring the natural, artistic and cultural heritage of the Morongo Basin and High Desert.  The Museum seeks to inspire wonder, discovery, understanding and responsibility in its community and visitors through exhibits, programs, and collections in the arts, history, and natural sciences.  The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is operated by the Town of Yucca Valley and is located in the Yucca Valley Community Center Complex at 57116 Twentynine Palms Highway.  The Museum is open Thursday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Admission is free; donations support the educational mission of the Museum.  For more information, contact the Hi-Desert Nature Museum at (760) 369-7212 or see our web site at www.hidesertnaturemuseum.org.   Visit us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
