Grace Hudson Nature Education Museum

Location: Ukiah


PGAdesign collaborated with Ann Baker Landscape Architecture to develop and enhance Grace Hudson Museum’s outdoor campus.  The Nature Education Center will showcase water conservation and the Pomo people’s relationship with plants.  The existing museum and Sun House focus on Grace and John Hudson, artists and anthropologists who studied and illustrated Pomo Indians that were part of their community.  The couple donated their collections of basketry and paintings, along with their family home—the Sun House—to start the museum.

This project sets out to reinforce and build on the relationship the Hudsons initiated with Pomo culture regarding plants and the earth. The completed space will include historical exhibits to educate visitors about how the local Pomo Tribes managed the lands of the Ukiah River Valley and will showcase modern-day techniques in resource preservation, water conservation and green building. PGAdesign provided technical design services for the project.
