Special day of plant activities, fun set for Maryhill Museum

First Sunday program offers something for everyone

Visitors are invited to celebrate the wonders of native Northwest plants from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 1, at Maryhill Museum of Art.

Children under 17 are free with one adult admission.

This First Sunday program is in conjunction with the museum's new exhibition A Passion for Plants: Before and After Lewis and Clark, and its Lewis and Clark Overlook and Native Plants Garden.

"There is something for everyone," said Courtney Spousta, curator of education. "You can attend the lecture, try papermaking and nature journaling, listen to Native American stories or ask a question at the master gardeners' plant clinic."

At 1 p.m., Lynette Miller, guest curator of A Passion for Plants, will present a slide lecture about the passions inspired by the plants Lewis and Clark documented.

From 2 to 3 p.m., artist Harvest Moon, a Quinault Indian basket weaver and storyteller, will share the wonder of plants through stories.

Artist Marilyn Wold will lead an activity at 3 p.m. on how to make paper from natural fibers.

From 2 to 4 p.m., visitors can venture into the museum's gardens to try their hands at nature journaling with artist Judy Siegel and visit with the Klickitat County Master Gardeners in their Plant Clinic.

All supplies will be provided free.
