Saturday, May 4, 2019 | 2:00-4:00 p.m.

Program Fee:
$20 per adult | $10.00 per student (6-17) | Free for Children 5 and Under

This outdoor hike offers an in-depth educational overview of the history of Fort Ancient and of the people who came to ceremony, worship and live in this area. Much will be shared about the terrain and physical aspects of the site, and the program will feature a hands-on spear throwing experience, rousing games of "double ball" -- plus an opportunity to see the mounds and hike the trails with an experienced guide.

Please note that the guided tour will depart the Museum at 2:00 p.m. Participants should dress for the weather and wear appropriate shoes. Keep in mind that as there is extensive walking for this tour and strollers may not be able to access all areas, it may not be appealing to very young children.
