Passport to Fun

Bud Irwin shows Payton Whitmore how to pan for gold at the Canyon City park on March 28 during the Passport to Fun activity day. Other stations included arts and crafts, a STEM activity, kids yoga, a display of fossil replicas and more. Passport to Fun, held during the week of spring break, gave children, ages 7-12, and their parents or guardians an opportunity to explore the local museums which had special events for the visitors. Peggy Murphy, curator of the Grant County Historical Museum in Canyon City, organized the event along with several volunteers.
