The Pinch Pot program is a hands-on 20 minute children’s program that will introduce participants on how the American Indians and English settlers made and used pottery. Each child receives a small ball of clay to make a souvenir pot using the pinch method employed by American Indians. All families with children are encouraged to attend. The program is presented Monday through Friday from the middle of June through the middle of August. This program is staff and weather dependent. The program will be canceled during inclement weather or staff shortages. Ask at the Visitor Center to determine if the program will be conducted on the day of your visit. NOTE: This is now part of our Chidren in Nature Program and is conducted Monday through Friday at 1pm, see below for more information about the Children in Nature Program.
