Children’s hour returns

The Children’s Hour returns to the Maturango Museum, with Docents presenting the next program Friday, Sept. 21, at 10:30 a.m.

“Young children and their families can look forward to the monthly programs about our desert and mountain environments — the animals, plants, rocks, and perhaps even some fairytales with a desert twist,” said a spokesperson.

“Plenty of wiggles are enjoyed during songs and poems following the stories and creativity can be freely expressed in a related craft. Through slides and the Discovery Table’s mostly hands-on exhibits a lot of enthusiastic learning rounds out the morning’s experience.”

Additional programs will be held Oct. 19, Nov. 16, and Dec. 14. The program themes are available on line at

The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., excepting major holidays. For additional information about events and exhibits call 760-375-6900.
