As the new school year unfolds, the Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum is committed to providing educational opportunities to our local school community. As the new Curator of Education, I would like to welcome teachers, administrators, and educators to attend a reception in your honor on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, from 4:00-5:30 pm.

Our collection of artifcacts from the area and exhibits featuring Santa Ynez Valley history provides many links to the History - Social Science Framework as well as the California Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI), especially at 3rd and 4th grade levels. Come and explore our current exhibits, preview samples of EEI classroom curriculum extensions, provide input and ideas for targeted classroom tours, and enjoy some wine and hors d'oeuvres in the company of fellow educators.

Theresa Reilly
Curator of Education
