With school just around the corner, Thanksgiving Point is excited to bring the joy of learning and wonders of the natural world to life for our community during August Appreciation Weeks! On designated weeks, neighboring school districts, Lehi residents, and those who serve our country will be able to visit our venues at a discounted rate.

Thanksgiving Point has been a nonprofit in Lehi for over twenty years, and during this time, it has developed many programs to help curious kids grow. The Museums for All program welcomes kids with families on SNAP or WIC benefits to visit for free. Thanksgiving Point educators visit every Title I school in Utah, bringing hands-on science learning to life. After-school programs, homeschool programs, field trips, and more help disadvantaged kids receive the education they need to thrive. With August Appreciation Weeks, Thanksgiving Point will give thanks to those who are integral to our community’s success.

During August Appreciation Weeks, guests who are part of the designated groups enjoy $10 admission to Butterfly Biosphere, Dinosaur Island at Ashton Gardens, Museum of Ancient Life, and Museum of Natural Curiosity. Farm Country admission is just $5 per person.
