If you are looking for a fun and educational outing for your daycare, church, youth or scout group this Summer, plan a trip to Booth Western Art Museum and sign up for the Fur, Feathers, Fins, & More program.

Explore the amazing world of animals from all over the world through film, artwork, and a creative art activity.  Of course, no trip to the Booth would be complete without a visit to Sagebrush Ranch.  This program is designed to help children learn about mammals, fish, birds and other animals through a variety of fun-filled activities.  A special exhibit, Art and the Animal, presented by members of the Society of Animal Artists provides an excellent opportunity for children to investigate the differences between members of the animal kingdom.
