Grace Hudson Nature Education Museum

Location: Ukiah


PGAdesign collaborated with Ann Baker Landscape Architecture to develop and enhance the Grace Hudson Museum’s outdoor campus. The museum’s Wild Gardens, an outdoor educational environment, showcases water conservation and the Indigenous 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 the Pomo people who 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 reinforces and build on the relationship the Hudsons initiated with Pomo people and their connection with plants and the earth. The completed space includes historical exhibits that educate visitors about land management practices of the Pomo tribes of the Ukiah river valley, and showcases modern-day techniques in resource preservation, water conservation, and green building. PGAdesign provided technical design services for the project.
