‘Wildlife Adventures" at BYU's Bean Museum to explore area caves, lakes, parks

The Brigham Young University Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum will present a summer of “Wildlife Adventures,” a series of two-day sessions for children ages 6 to 12, during July and August.

The first session, “Creepy Crusade,” will be offered on July 11 and 13. Participants will make bug nets and bug collections and will hunt for “creepy critters” at Utah Lake.

The second session on July 18 and 20 will be called “Cave Spelunking” and will feature a trip to Timpanogos Cave. Participants will have the chance to explore cave life and find out how caves are made.

The last session of the month, scheduled for July 25 and 27, will be titled “Rock On!” This session will be two days of experimenting with rocks and exploring Provo Canyon.

“Jurassic Attack” will run Aug. 1 and 3. Children will learn about dinosaurs and visit the Earth Science Museum to do experiments with fossils.

The sessions will wrap up with “Earth Conscience,” scheduled for Aug. 8 and 10. Participants will learn to be “superheroes” and take care of the earth. The new skills will be put to the test in Rock Canyon Park.

Classes will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays at the museum, and no lunch is provided. Thursday classes will run from noon until 3 p.m. with a snack provided. Registration is $30 per weeklong class, and children must be registered at least one week prior to the class.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
