Observe Native American Heritage Month, a time to celebrate the culture, history, and traditions of native people. Pay tribute to their important contributions and unique challenges both past and present with “Abenaki of New England” presented by The Nature Museum

All ages are welcome.

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, play outdoor games, and make a nature-inspired craft!

Hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10-6 and Saturday 10-2.
