We have another field trip coming up this coming Saturday April 13th.

All the information you need is below along with some links to some interesting articles. We hope you can join us. As always no need to RSVP but if you are going to join us and want us to look out for you feel free to RSVP at our email address at the bottom of this post. See you real soon!

This small museum sits on what was a massive Aerospace campus that closed in 1999 after 70 years in business. At its height it employed over 25,000 people. It now houses two very large outdoor dining and shopping centers and a large Kaiser hospital/campus. (And for a short time a movie studio!)
