The Remington Nature Center (RNC) will host two mock archaeological digs for children in July. The digs will simulate actual digs of real archaeologists, and allow children to find and take home authentic artifacts.
The two dates are Saturday, July 14, and Saturday, July 28. Participants can choose one of these date options. The digs will start at 10am, with a brief class explaining about the dig and what items they may be finding. Participants need to wear old clothing, bring sunscreen, mosquito repellant, and bottled water.
Advanced reservations and advanced payment are required, as space is limited. Costs for the mock dig are $10 per child and $3 for adults. Members are $5 per child. Fees include touring the Remington Nature Center. The dig is best suited for children 7-12 years old, but exceptions can be made.
To reserve a spot, contact Andrea George, RNC manager, at 816-676-3204, or email email@example.com.
The Remington Nature Center is open seven days a week, including many holidays, and admission is $3 or under. For operating hours and additional information, including a listing of events, call 816-271-5499, visit www.stjoenaturecenter.info or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RemingtonNatureCenter.
