Open house - fun for the whole family!

Event Details

The indigenous cultures of Northern California will be explored and celebrated during Native American History Month. Children will discover the rich heritage of the Maidu, through the study of artifacts, sacred spaces, folklife, food customs, and lifeways.

The disciplines of archaeology and anthropology will be introduced to kids by archaeologists, historians, and flint-knappers.

*Wear comfortable shoes and clothing as this program will start in the Museum and go “off road” to the Nature Trail for a heritage hike that marries culture to ecology; we’ll find acorns and other indigenous foods, examine prehistoric grinding stones, and look for wildlife such as deer, rabbit, or even a rafter of turkeys! (Recommended Age 6+)

The Museum will be open for all to walk around to see the exhibits.

Sponsored by: Sierra College Natural History Museum
