The Earth is home to us all, and we need your help to give it a proper celebration! Leading up to Earth Day on April 22, we’ll have a massive paper mâché planet in the Lightcatcher building. Our world is full of wonderful and unique animals, and that’s where you come in. Join us in the FIG to make or color an animal, and then add it to our huge globe. By April 22, we hope to see an amazing variety of life spread throughout the globe, just like in real life.
The Whatcom Museum acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Lhaq’temish – Lummi People – and the Nuxwsá7aq – Nooksack People – who have lived in the Coast Salish region from time immemorial. The Museum honors our relationship with all of our Coast Salish neighbors and our shared responsibilities to their homeland where we all reside today.
