Grace Hudson Museum has put together a fall program that will offer education, community, inspiration and enjoyment to carry all of us into the holiday season.
Beginning this Saturday, October 10th in the Wild Gardens and stretching through December 6th with a livestreaming Holiday Special, the program includes a talk on Inuit printmaking with Leslie Saxon West; an acorn harvest in the Wild Gardens later in the season; and a virtual book club reading about Grace Hudson’s grandmother, an early activist for women’s rights. All events on the fall calendar are free.
The Wild Gardens will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday for visitors to take a stroll. Exploration is encouraged with self-guided materials. And Little Bear will be presiding over his popular table of Native tools and toys.
The Wild Gardens is a work in progress designed to showcase native plants and their habitats, and to learn about environmental sustainability and the cultural traditions of the Pomo Indians, Ukiah Valley’s original inhabitants. The Gardens feature an outdoor classroom with open-air seating; a fish trap sculpture and artisanal benches; and replicas of a salmon stream, wetlands, and other native environments.
Visitors are requested to observe social distancing and to wear masks during their visit. There will be a limit of 50 people in the garden at one time.
The Grace Hudson Museum is at 431 S. Main St. in Ukiah. For more information please go to www.gracehudsonmuseum.org.
