The updated and expanded Protecting Our River exhibit at the Reach museum in Richland will be unveiled at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 28.

The Reach, Washington Closure Hanford and the Reach Foundation partnered on the upgrade as part of the new Community Legacy Project. The project is underwritten by Washington Closure Hanford to promote better understanding of the Hanford story and access
