The Children's Museum of the Magic Valley (CMMV) is an emerging hands-on children's museum located in Twin Falls, Idaho. CMMV will focus exhibits,
programming, and children's activities on the Magic Valley's 37,000 children ages birth through eleven years. The research and concept development behind CMMV has been ongoing since mid-2018 when it was founded as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Our mission is to engage children of all ages and abilities in learning through imaginative play and discovery. Our vision is to be a gathering place that builds wonder and curiosity in children and families. A volunteer board of directors works diligently to bring this educational amenity to the community. In June 2019 we launched our community outreach program. Over 2,000 people participated in hands-on mobile exhibits over the summer. Fall 2019, we expanded our impact by partnering with area elementary schools to host STEAM Family Nights. We served 2,850 individuals within our first year of our educational outreach program. Fall 2020, we modified our program, creating a more social distanced event, hosting an outdoor STEAM Family Night in October. We are excited for the opportunities to host a number of events this summer.
We are not stopping with community outreach. Our goal is to establish a permanent, state-of-the-art children's museum in Twin Falls. We are working with the Twin Falls Urban Renewal Agency (URA) to finalize negotiations for our site on the corner of 3rd Ave. South & Idaho St. South. Downtown Twin Falls is the heart of our community, and the Children’s Museum of Magic Valley is eager and committed to becoming a vital part of this historical area. We are excited to see the magic within the Magic Valley unfold as we work together to create a beautiful museum for our children.

Board Site Announcement
The Jackpot Fire Department is responsible for an area that is 80 miles in diameter. They not only respond to fire emergencies, but also to medical emergencies. They are currently housed in a building owned by Jackpot Township. The building is small and inadequate for Fire Department personnel and equipment storage needs.
The Fire Department has been allocated land for a new fire station location near the airport and golf course. It has been determined that an 80' x 150' building would be adequate to house all the department's equipment in one location and have adequate space for training and living quarters. Hopes are that construction of the building can begin in the spring of 2019 with completion within a year.
A donor is already willing to contribute much of the funding for the new building, but additional funding from businesses and residents of Jackpot is needed to successfully complete the project.
Your support and contributions will make the new fire station possible.
In 2017 a major addition to the Snake River Canyon Rim Trail was completed from Eastland Drive N. to the Evel Knievel jump site. That segment connected the trail from the Twin Falls Visitors Center to Shoshone Falls.
The Twin Falls Community Foundation and the Magic Valley Trail Enhancement Committee (MaVTEC) thanks the community, City of Twin Falls, corporate sponsors, and all of the participants who have been involved in the fun runs and other fund raising events for the last 10 years. We would not be here without the amazing community support.
Magic Valley Trail Enhancement Committee (MaVTEC) is a volunteer led group under the Twin Falls Community Foundation with a strong passion for the safety and health of the community in which they live in. MaVTEC's partnership with the City of Twin Falls and neighbors help provide the support needed to enhance, build, and update walking, running and bike trails. The most current and completed section of trail connects the two existing trails from the Evel Knievel jumpsite to the Visitor Center. More trail expansion is expected for the future. Funding is by donations from the public and fundraising efforts of the Magic Valley Trail Enhancement Committee.
There are still trail enhancements yet to be made. To see 2019 fund raising events click on "link to MaVTEC" below to connect to the MaVTEC website.
