CHICO, Calif. - The Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology at Chico State kicks off I Heart Anthropology Week on Feb. 9 with Family Day. 

Against the backdrop of the current exhibit "Remarkable Lives" about the intertwined worlds of birds and humans, families can make hands-on crafts and art projects. There will be feather art, story time and a chance to make paper birds with artist Victoria Davila. 

The event runs from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday and admission is free. The Museum is located in the Meriam Library Complex on the Chico State campus. 

On Sunday, Feb. 10 from 4 - 5 p.m. at the Chico Women's Club is the World Explorations Speaker Series.

You can journey to Peru with expert birder John McCormick. His Peruvian adventure took him from the ancient capital of the Incas, over the Andes to the Madre de Dios River in the Amazon Basin. McCormick will share some spectacular photographs. This event is also free.

The Museum will celebrate "Giving Day" at Chico State on Valentine's Day, Feb.14, by serving up cake at noon. On this day museum supporters are encouraged to make a donation to the museum to help fund its summer camps scholarship program. The goal is to raise $1,550 for 10 scholarships. The cake is free.
