After a short lesson on the basics of ice fishing and filleting your catch, anglers will try their luck on the ice. Volunteers will be on hand throughout the day to assist participants on the ice. A warming area and refreshments will be available. Rain date is February 25. Call 518-872-0800 for more information.

In 1989, the NY State Museum (NYSM) repatriated 22 wampum belts to the Onondaga Nation, including four belts originally purchased by John Boyd Thacher. Exhibition, drama and a lawsuit marked Thacher's tenure as "owner" of the belts, which eventually entered the NYSM collections via Emma Treadwell Thacher. Today, the NYSM works to cultivate relationships with Native American communities through repatriation as well as growing a collection of contemporary Native American Art. Presented by Dr. Gwen Saul, anthropologist at the New York State Museum. Call 518-872-0800 for more information.
