OSA archaeologist Cherie Haury-Artz will join the Louisa County Conservation Board for their fourth annual Langwood Adventure Day on Saturday, June 3. Cherie will bring a selection of traditional toys and games. Traditional toys and games had many purposes and were not meant to be played alone. Games brought people together, stimulated social interaction and strengthened social bonds, and taught skills, patience, and endurance – virtues that would be important in adult life. Participants get to challenge themselves by playing some traditional Native American toys and games and learning that fun and challenging games can be made with simple materials found in nature.
Other activities and sessions will include high ropes, kayaking, canoeing, shooting sports, fishing, hikes, and much more.
Activity stations are open from 8am-12pm, with a free lunch/raffle afterwards.
