LOGAN — The calendar says it’s almost spring and Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology invites visitors to celebrate.

The museum provides activities Saturday, March 9, in its “Saturdays at the Museum” series that are centered on the theme of spring. Event organizers invite guests to learn how cultures around the world welcome the sun and arrival of new life. Patrons can decorate Easter eggs, learn about the language of flowers, make flower crafts and enjoy a relaxing cup of rose tea.

“Spring is the best time of year because the weather starts getting warmer and the days are longer,” said Diana Azevedo, a museum assistant. “Baby animals are being born and the trees turn green. Everything comes back to life and that’s why people, ancient and modern alike, continue to celebrate spring.”

And, in a nod to spring break the following week at USU, the museum will be closed and there is no “Saturdays at the Museum” activity March 16.

In addition to the “Saturdays at the Museum” activity series with its 10 a.m.-4 p.m. hours, community members and USU students alike can visit the museum during its standard operating hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. 

Funding for Saturday events is provided by a grant from the United States Institute of Museum and Library Services. More information about the IMLS is available online (www.imls.gov).

The USU Museum of Anthropology can be found on the USU campus in the south turret of the historic Old Main building, Room 252. Admission is free. For Saturday activities, free parking is available in the adjacent lot, south of the building.

For more information about museum events, call museum staff at (435) 797-7545 or visit the museum website (anthromuseum.usu.edu).

The Museum of Anthropology is part of the Anthropology Program at USU in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
