Weekend Activities at Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park
Saturday June 9
11:00a.m.- Reusing our Waste to Help Wildlife One man’s trash is another bird’s treasure. Join us at the park museum to learn how recycling can be a fun way to care for wildlife. By taking waste created from our daily lives, we can help the lives of wildlife such as the birds in our backyard by building them a home.
12:00p.m.- How man overcame the buffalo Join us at the park museum for a reading of The Great Race of the Birds and Animals and see how our four-legged and winged friends helped us win the race for survival.
1:45p.m.- Ancient Technology Come and try your hand at the atlatl! About 10,000 years before the introduction of the bow and arrow, Native Americans used a spear thrower or atlatl to hunt large game. Meet us at the front lawn of the museum for this interactive demonstration.
3:15p.m.- Painting Prehistoric Pendants Native Americans reached an artistic pinnacle with the creation of the conch shell gorgets or pendants. Join us at the park museum where we will paint our own “elaborately engraved shell gorgets” which display Native American beliefs and creativity.
