Turtle Bay Exploration Park is proud to announce an operating grant from the U.S. Bank Foundation in support of exhibitions, educational programs and activities throughout the Park. The cornerstones of Turtle Bay’s vision are education, cultural engagement, and economic growth. Every exhibit, program, and activity is designed to support the underlying theme of Turtle Bay: to inspire wonder, exploration, and appreciation of our world. Turtle Bay is proud to partner with U.S. Bank to continue to bring these vital programs to up to 150,000 annual visitors to Turtle Bay Exploration Park, including up to 18,000 students on school field trips.
For the past 14 years, U.S. Bank has provided major support for the operations and educational programming of Turtle Bay. U.S. Bank was the co-presenting sponsor, along with Shasta Regional Medical Center, of our summer exhibition: Mindbender Mansion, which was enjoyed by over 42,111 guests during its time at Turtle Bay. The sponsorship continued a long tradition of U.S. Bank’s annual support of Turtle Bay’s summer blockbuster exhibitions.
“The lessons we learn when we visit Turtle Bay Exploration Park are important to our understanding of the environment and cultural awareness,” said Liesl Schmidt, Region President with U.S. Bank. “We are pleased to make these experiences available to more people – particularly children – as investment in our community’s sustainability and growth.”
