Location: McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park

Details:

Historical crafts come alive during Heritage Day 2019 at McArthur-Burney Falls State Park. Youngsters’ eyes are opened to the Pioneer (circa 1870’s) lifestyle, an era before internet and smart phones.    For the mature crowd, it’s an opportunity to remember stories told by ancestors and historians.  For all, it is a hands-on experience with teachers dressed in period costumes and... it's loads of fun.

Among the items participants can make are candles, doll-making using native materials, branding cedar rounds and the lost art of calligraphy.  Additional exhibits include blacksmithing, brand designing, rope-making, shave and curl, shingle making, two-man saw bucking, spinning and weaving, and bead-making.  An age old skill beneficial to individuals using modern camp stoves is learning how-to start a campfire with flint and steel in case the camp stove fails.
