Our program is so proud of you and all your determination this school year! We are so grateful for our wonderful donors, Lana and Richard Harris for their $2,000 donation and our hard-working Parent Committee for making these scholarships possible.
"We celebrate and honor Native American tradition and heritage at Thanksgiving Point’s Roots of Wisdom exhibit, located in the Museum of Ancient Life, and What’s the Story exhibit, located in the Butterfly Biosphere. Native American leaders from Utah’s tribes will share their traditions of storytelling, and discuss how the original stewards of the land used their science to ensure environmental sustainability. Our Native American partners and our team of entomologists will discuss, compare and contrast the origin stories of invertebrates such as the ant, the butterfly, the scorpion, or the spider, and the Western science perspective on those animals. The event will be held in the lobby gallery at the Butterfly Biosphere and in the Discovery gallery at the Museum of Ancient Life, from 4 pm to 8 pm. Admission to the event is free."
The United Way has been meeting with various ethnic groups to help them better understand the needs of families in the county. They are providing the opporunity foir a $25 gift card for those who participate.
