11 September 2017; Take A Child Outside Week 2017

We are Participating in “Take A Child Outside Week”!

The Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center invites individuals to join them in celebrating the annual “Take a Child Outside Week” September 24-30, 2017​.

“We know the importance of physical activity and opportunities to explore and interact with nature,” said Carl Bornfriend, executive director of the museum. “In order to help facilitate that, the museum will provide complimentary admission to families, teachers, and caregivers who bring pre-school and school-age children to the museum during the week of September 24-30, 2017”

Visitors will find a number of ways to interact with nature. The museum trail includes several acres of maritime forest with geese, ducks, and other wild birds inhabiting the large pond and beautiful waterway that crosses the trail. Winding paths also include exhibits on plant life, Native American habitat, a longhouse under construction and a fossil pile for hands-on activities. Shell scrapers will be available to work on the 20 foot cypress log that is currently being transformed into a dugout canoe.

Other program opportunities are also available with advance planning. For more information, individuals can contact the museum which is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:30 am—5:00 pm
​or​ visit the museum web site at www.nativeamericanmuseum.org, or call 252-995-4440.
