Revisit a time when Native Americans relied upon wetlands for many needs. Learn how local plants were used for medicines, food, tools, and clothing. Kids can try acorn grinding, play Kumeyaay games, make authentic crafts, and unearth “finds” at a mock dig site. Enjoy traditional Native American storytelling at 2 pm each day.
