Upcoming May Events at Davidsonville

Historic Oven Workshop: May 12th , 2018 from 1:00-4:00p.m.

Meeting Location: Visitor Center Porch

Bring your appetite and a willingness to learn as we prepare a Dutch and Earthen Oven Dinner at Davidsonville. Participates will help prep, cook, and clean a three course meal that looks and tastes just as great as the food the original settlers of Davidsonville prepared. This program is great as a family outing, for making new friends, and for learning how historic meals were prepared. This is a rain date rescheduled program, so don’t wait, sign up today!

Program Fee: $20

Kids to Parks Day: May 19th. 2018 from 9:00–11:00am and 1:00-3:00p.m.

Meeting Location: Visitor Center

Where oh where has the ranger gone? Calling all kids! One of our rangers has wandered out into the park and took all our candy with them! Stop by the visitor center for clues as to his location and begin your hunt. If you find the ranger, he may just reward you with a sweet prize. Grab your hiking shoes and binoculars and come join us for this fun morning of park exploration. In the afternoon, join us at the education center for a fun crafting project.

Program Fee: Free
