Little Learners Program at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Connects Young Visitors to History

February 22 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


This spring, a new preschooler-friendly program at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site will invite children ages 3 to 6 and their caregivers to explore history and archaeological artifacts. Each of the four upcoming monthly programs will feature a short talk by one of the national park’s curators, a story reading, craft, and the chance to see real archaeological artifacts from the park’s museum collection.

“National parks are great places to bring young children, with lots of opportunities to learn and explore outside of a classroom setting,” said Assistant Curator Meagan Huff. “We will be using fun, contemporary children’s books to make connections between the present and the past at Fort Vancouver. For adult caregivers and families, we hope this program will help to spark conversations about history, archaeology, and national parks.”
