Can’t come out? We can come to you!
From October through December we provide interpretive programs for local schools. The programs are free of charge and can be customized to complement your students' grade and school curriculum.
Depending on the number of students, the program can last between 45 minutes to 3 hours.
Costs: $ 0 - free of charge
Availability: every Wednesdays; October through December
Minimum number of students: 20 students
Topics include but are not limited to:
1. Citrus/Riverside History
Learn about the history of citrus and how the arrival of the Washington Navel Orange changed Southern California. We will highlight the contributions of minorities, the influence of technological development, and also bring some of the more exotic citrus fruits to look at.
Explore the wildlife of Southern California. We will bring animal pelts, skulls, and other hands-on materials to engage with the students.
3. Native Americans
Students will learn about the local tribes in Riverside County, and hear about their culture and traditions. Hands-on materials such as a metate and mano, baskets, and tools will enhance the presentation.
If you have other topics in mind or cannot make it on a Wednesday, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will work with you to accommodate your requests.
