The Nature Museum highlights the Native American philosophy of kinship with nature, connection to the earth and respect for every form of living creature through activities, stories and games.

We will learn about Abenaki life pre-contact to the Europeans (late 1500's) and discover what tools, skills, and natural resources were utilized.

Families are welcome. This event is part of our Saturday series of environmental education programs for families.

Admission is by donation. RSVP required as space is limited. Pack snack, and water bottle and wear shoes for hiking over uneven terrain. Rain or shine.
