Frisco Native American Museum





FRISCO NATIVE AMERICAN MUSEUM & NATURAL HISTORY CENTER PARTICIPATING IN TAKE A CHILD OUTSIDE WEEK
One of the joys in life is seeing a child light up with the excitement of discovery. Opportunities to do that will abound during the annual “Take a Child Outside Week” September 24-30, 2016. The Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History will join with the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and partner organizations across the U.S. and Canada to provide a week of fun and challenging ways to explore the natural world.
“We know the importance of physical activity and the means to interact with nature,” said Carl Bornfriend, executive director of the museum. “Our goal is to support the program objectives to break down obstacles and create confidence and a sense of enthusiasm for new adventures in the wild. In order to help facilitate that, the museum will provide complimentary admission to families, teachers, and caregivers who bring pre-school and school-age children to the museum during the week of September 24-30, 2016.”
The museum nature trail includes several acres of maritime forest with geese, ducks, and other wild birds inhabiting the large pond and waterway that crosses the trail. Winding paths include exhibits on plant life, Native American habitat, a longhouse under construction and a fossil pile for hands-on activities.
Opportunities will also be available to work on a 10 foot cypress log and help transform it into a dugout canoe using shell scrapers and lots of “elbow grease.”

Other program opportunities are available with advance planning.
The museum is located on Hatteras Island and open Tuesday through Sunday
from 10:30 AM to 5:00 PM; Mondays by appointment only.
