Saturday, October 14, 2017 - Our first ever Oktoberfest fundraiser was a huge success! Thank you everyone who came out and celebrated with us!
Turtle Bay offers guests a unique opportunity to participate in hands-on learning with Maker Wednesdays, a series of special events led by educators and volunteers.
With its Donatello form featuring graceful lines, elegantly angular handles, and painted patterns reminiscent of the Art Deco style, this teapot and creamer set captured the imagination of our museum guests.
Bobcats are the most abundant wildcat in North America but, being so elusive, it’s hard for anybody to ever spot one. Bobcats get their name from the shortened or bobbed tail. The coloration of a bobcat’s fur depends on where they live. If they live in the woods, they have a lot of spots. If they live in the open areas, it’s more solid.
Community members, donors and staff gathered this morning to celebrate the opening of Turtle Bay’s Forest Adventure Playground, a new big-kids play area located within Paul Bunyan’s Forest Camp. This playground is the most recent inclusion from the Park’s Forestry Forward Project and is complimented by Babe’s Corral, a playground for children ages 0-5, as well as the Mill Building.
One might argue that the handbag (purse, satchel, or just plain old bag) is probably one of the oldest hominid inventions. An animal bladder, a skin, a gourd, or even a really big leaf could be adapted as an effective way to carry our ever-increasing number of possessions. Over millennia, a relatively simple and practical way to carry stuff has been elevated to an art form and a status symbol accessory.
