Mrs. Wylie and her students at Cambridge organized a book sale and raised $637.50 to donate to the drive to bring the “Story Time” sculpture to the Cultural Center Library. Students were enthusiastic in helping to make this happen. Public art and cultural experiences are important to Vacaville residents.
Rush Ranch, on Grizzly Island, has a wonderful docent led program teaching 3rd graders about the native Patwin people who first inhabited the area. Wylie worked as a docent this spring until the pandemic caused the close of schools. It is important to protect our natural resources and educate students about the history of people who once lived here. Students were excited to be near the Suisun marsh and learn how the Patwin used natural resources while living in a thriving community long ago.
