Kindred Spirits: Fall - Native Ways and Giving Nature Thanks

This autumnal program for families will explore Native peoples’ traditions of living in balance with Earth, the seasons, and other living things. This program will highlight the Native Americans of the local region, the Abenaki. Come discover hands-on artifacts and learn of the deep understanding, respect, and connectedness the Native people of our region have with the natural world. Be ready to go on a hike to test your observation skills and immerse yourself in the outdoors.

More About Kindred Spirits

Kindred Spirits is an all ages program that runs throughout the year with one program per season. It is designed to build a greater understanding between all creatures of the Earth by exploring the mysteries of nature. Kindred Spirits programs will happen rain, snow, or shine! Make sure you and yours are ready for whatever the weather has in store for us! If we deem there are unsafe weather conditions (e.g. thunder/lightning, high winds, extreme cold, etc.), we will have an alternative indoor activity.

By offering a shared experience that draws families together, participants will develop a stronger kinship with our Earth and each other. Programs offer hands-on activities both indoors and out. All ages welcome. Admission is by donation and includes exploring the Nature Museum's exhibits on your own following the program.

If there is hazardous weather for traveling or any unforeseen circumstance that would not allow a program to happen, please check the email you registered for the program with OR please visit for any cancellation notice.
