Spring has sprung at The Reach!

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND WA.-- The Reach Museum celebrated the spring season on Saturday hosting its very own "Spring" event. Families were invited to the reach to explore numerous "spring themed" stations, including arts and crafts, local artists and foods, and even a station with our very own weatherman, Tim Adams. He was set up and ready to go with some heavy lighting and beach-ball globes, which he used to teach kids about the way the Earth orbits around the Sun. 

Tim wasn't the only teacher of the day! Each station involved an education, and incorporated a different element of Spring, whether it was learning how to make a toy boat to float outside in the warm weather, or learning about the different types of plants and animals that inhabit the Tri-Cities. 

"We have a lot of crafts focusing on the spring flowers and the pollinators," said expert, Pauline Schafer, "We're also focusing on the native plants. We're just coming to the end of the season when all the native plants are in bloom."

The best part of the event, however, was that all the attendees walked away with a new favorite reason to love Spring.
