Imagine a world without computers, cell phones, cars, stores, and houses. Here in Northern New England, there was a time when none of these things were around! Everything came from what you could find, hunt, gather, and make from the land. For thousands of years, the indigenous Abenaki people have lived in harmony with the land and have gained a deep knowledge and respect for it. Come learn about what life was like before our time and how living closer to the land made people more connected to nature. Investigate Native American artifacts, hear Native American stories, and go on a hike outdoors to connect with nature!
Ages: 3 to 6 years old + caregiver
