Curation Month Update

As one volunteer remarked, "This is truely a hands on process!"

May was curation month with the Museum's main focus on engaging volunteers and the community with the curation process. We started a very successful partnership with the Colorado Desert Archaeology Society this month and we've had two very devoted weekly volunteers. Our volunteer artifact curation skyrocketed from 230 artifacts to 1,366. Getting the collections into museum quality storage is the number one priority of the museum and the volunteers efforts to support this cause cannot be understated.

The curation process continues through the summer during our public hours Thursday - Saturday from 10am - 3pm.
