Coyotita Musical at the Museum

On Saturday, December 13th at 2pm the museum is excited to partner with Teatro Dominguez from Cal State University, Dominguez Hills to host the Teatro’s folktale-based children’s musical at the museum.  Coyotita was written by Bill Deluca and Naomi Buckley and informs children about how they can help the environment.  The characters are all animals, played and sung by actors in masks and costumes.

Coyotita gets to meet creatures from the sea, the air, and the land in her quest to try and save her Yucca plants.  Children are brought onstage to join in with cleaning up their world during the song, “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.”

This is a great musical for both children and adults.  The musical is free and will be outside behind the adobe so it is a wonderful setting.

Monarch Butterfly Garden Opens to the Public

Join us on Saturday, November 15th from 10am to 1pm to see the new monarch butterfly garden in the rose garden.  The garden was created to conserve and protect monarch habitats.  The museum is a monarch waystation and a wildlife habitat.  See the garden, learn more about monarch butterflies and explore the Rancho.
