Upcoming Exhibits

Central Washington University’s Museum of Culture and Environment will host an opening reception for its latest exhibit, How did the Cougar Cross the Road? Restoring Wildlife Passages at Snoqualmie Pass, at 5:30 p.m. April 17.

Refreshments will be served as visitors explore the brand new exhibit that tells the story of wildlife connectivity corridors linking animal populations formerly divided by Interstate 90. Follow in the footsteps of native fauna over a recreated wildlife overpass and discover how the cougar crosses the road, and how humans are helping.

A series of speakers including Yvonne Prater, author of Snoqualmie Pass: From Indian Trail to Interstate; Al Aronica (Kittitas Band of the Yakama Nation), Brian White (WSDOT), Jason Smith (WSDOT) and Patti Davis-Darda (USFS) will discuss their knowledge and research concerning the history of Snoqualmie Pass and its wildlife passages.
