As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Sundial Bridge as the theme of our 2024
quilt show, we felt it was important to focus on the area surrounding the bridge called
Turtle Bay Exploration Park. The theme of our Quilt Challenge, “Discover Turtle Bay” will
hopefully depict quilts showing various aspects of the Turtle Bay area.
The Exploration Park is a fun, 300-acre cultural center located along the Sacramento
River in Redding. It features a museum, indoor & outdoor animal exhibits and
demonstrations, Paul Bunyan’s Forest Camp with playgrounds, the McConnell Arboretum
and Botanical Gardens, the garden nursery, and the world-famous Sundial Bridge. In
addition, there are numerous walking trails, opportunities for bird and wildlife watching,
including the well-known Redding eagles’ nest, the Garden of Lights, the Wings of
Summer butterfly exhibit, access to the river where you can find people fishing and using
various types of water craft to navigate the river.
Turtle Bay Museum is where art, science, history, forestry, and horticulture meet with
permanent exhibits about our region and changing exhibits from around the world. We
have been asked to have our Challenge Quilts as one of those exhibits in the museum
from Oct.-Dec. 2024 for those quilters who wish to have their quilts on display during
that time. This will be a guild Special Project.
