Masks and salmon on display at Whitethorn BLM

Redwood Times

The Mattole Restoration Council’s Ecological Education Program and the Bureau of Land Management’s "Lost Coast Life Lab" after-school program invite the public to check out two art/science exhibits that will go up in May at the Whitethorn BLM office.

Grants from the California Coastal Commission’s Whale Tail program and Department of Fish and Game helped fund classes in which Whitethorn and Whale Gulch students created "Masks of the Mattole" using natural objects collected from around the Mattole watershed, and students from Mattole School in Petrolia built a life-sized sculpture of a salmon, available as a teaching tool after the exhibit is over.
