Project Stewardship participants will be visiting Garvies Point Museum and Preserve together this month.
Garvies Point Museum and Preserve will provide our group with additional exposure to topics of interest that inspire our young people! The Museum is a center for research on Long Island geology and a valued resource in the study of the Island’s Native American archaeology and natural history. They offer exhibits, films, educational programs, hands-on activities and nature hikes. The preserve is part of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums whose mission is to preserve and interpret the county’s natural, prehistoric and historic heritage.
We will participate in a Native American Tools and Artifact Program. This hands-on lecture/demonstration shows how Native Americans made and used tools, such as stone-working and woodworking tools, as a means of adapting their environment to their life needs. Participants will be able to handle authentic tools and other artifacts. In addition, they will have an opportunity to use replicated tools such as mortars and pestles to grind corn, fire drills for making fire, and pump drills for drilling holes in stone.
Bring water, light lunch or snack. And, money if you wish to purchase something from the museum gift shop! Scenic walks for photographing!
Project Stewardship is our program for young adults (monthly meetings/workshops and outings in addition to volunteer/internship placements) providing opportunities for participants to find and follow their bliss while connecting with and helping others in the process! MAKE NEW FRIENDS • BUILD SKILLS • GAIN LIFE-ENHANCING EXPERIENCES.
