Minnewaska Homeschoolers: The Story of the Wild Turkey

Thursday, November 4, 2021 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Join other homeschoolers to learn about the importance of the American wild turkey throughout human history. From its significance to native people, to its role as the symbol of Thanksgiving, to the success of conservation efforts over the past decades. We will make pinecone turkeys to take home! The program will end with a short hike to look for signs of turkeys and other birds. This program is recommended for children over the age of nine, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian over the age of 18. Well-behaved younger siblings are always welcome to join the program. The total number of participants for this program is limited to fifteen individuals. Meet at the Minnewaska Visitors Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
