When wild strawberries ripen, they represent life and good health. As the first local berry to ripen, they also herald the arrival of summer. Participate in family-friendly educational activities related to the gifts of this fruit, which holds significance to many Native American communities. Enjoy some strawberry refreshments as you listen to traditional Native American stories. As a special treat this year, join Jesse Rose Komaromi, Schaghticoke Tribal Nation, for a guided plant walk along our museums’ trails as she discusses ways of reclaiming relationships with the natural world through an Indigenous lens.

Pre-Registration is appreciated and space is limited on the walk. Please visit our website to register via Eventbrite. Questions? Please email [email protected] or call (860) 868-0518, ext 453. Price of Participation: $15 for Non-Members: $5 for Members. $5 extra for the guided walk experience.
