Hundreds of years before Wargo Nature Center existed, the Dakota people lived along the Rice Creek and gathered the wild rice the creek is named for. This month we’ll learn about what their lives were like back then. We’ll also do a craft project to help us prepare for next month, when we will build a traditional Native American winter home. Pre-registration is required.

Target Grade Level: Grades K-2

Cost per Child/Student: $5 plus tax
Cost per Adult/Educator: free
