Little Learners program at Fort Vancouver
February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 2:00pm on day Fourth of the month, repeating until May 23, 2019
Fort Vancouver National Historic Site’s “Little Learners” is a preschooler-friendly exploration of archaeology and history. Led by National Park Service Curator Meagan Huff, Little Learners aims to teach both children and their caregivers about the fascinating stories behind the park’s museum collection of archaeological and historic artifacts. Designed for children ages 3 to 6, each program includes a short introductory talk, a story reading, craft or activity, and the chance to see real archaeological and historic artifacts from the park’s museum collection. Each program takes place at 2 p.m. inside the Counting House at Fort Vancouver, and lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
