bugsFamilies can learn “All About Bugs” at the Victor Valley Museum in Apple Valley on Thursday, July 24, 2014 from 2 to 4 p.m. This program, supported by a grant from the Community Foundation of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, is presented by the education division of the San Bernardino County Museum and is included with paid museum admission.

A variety of activities will engage visitors of all ages as we discover what lives in their own backyards.”
