Fourth grade students from Katie Bruley’s class at Sacred Heart School in Turlock were able to get greater insight into their lessons on California history and nature conservation during a visit to the Carnegie Arts Center and its Ansel Adams exhibit. Adams’ iconic photographs of California — and especially Yosemite National Park — have long been a part of the state’s conservation movement.

The students were able to visit the arts center due to a $5,700 grant from Manteca-based Watermill Express. The business has paid transportation costs for students from around the region to visit the Turlock arts center — and receive a souvenir postcard, said Carnegie Arts Center Assistant Director Lisa McDermott. Schools from as far away as Lodi, Merced and Sonora will visit the Ansel Adams exhibit in the coming weeks.
