Class Package- Hands-on Heritage 2017-18

60.00

Come to learn a new/old skill! 

Tyler State Park is partnering with Nichole Gerding of Thankful Sage Farm School to bring you ‘Hands-On Heritage.’

In each of these programs, we will discuss local history in context of the season, and try our hand at some heritage skills to take home to share with our families.  

We are offering two options for classes- a Monday evening session which allows older children, 12 and up, to join their parent/guardian (please note, we cannot be responsible for your child) and an adults only Tuesday morning session. 

This listing is to participate in the entire Hands-on Heritage season. Please designate the session you wish to attend. There is a tiny bit of flexibility if you need to switch a session, but not much. Please let me know as soon as possible if you wish to work out a scheduling conflict.
