People have lived on this land for thousands of years. How did the people of "prairie past" use the land to live and what can we learn from them? Join "Archaeologist Joe" to make maps, learn about the tools an archaeologist uses, and get out in the field to investigate a site from the 1800's. Do you like to dig in the dirt and solve mysteries? Maybe you're an archaeologist too! Recommended for ages 6-12.

If you'd like to register for this program, please call 815-423-6370.
