Emigrants came to California in one of two ways. “By Land and by Sea” explores the challenges of these journeys. What did emigrants pack for their journey? Is Hardtack edible? Did Captain Sutter use ships on the Sacramento River? Find the answers by helping to pack a wagon or trunk, choosing how to come west, using a nautical compass and learning from diaries and stories. Participants can help weave rope, learn simple knots, create maps and other fun projects to prepare for the trip of a lifetime.
