“This free event is always great fun for all involved.  Children, parents, grandparents, volunteers and educators enjoy a day full of unique learning opportunities,” said Plano Conservancy Co-Director Jeff Campbell. “This event is a wonderful learning experience and features fun for the whole family.”

The fair features a variety of activities and exhibits including rock painting, corn husk doll creation, face painting, a petroglyph site, a pictograph wall and more. Many children also participate in the hands-on excavation “archaeology dig”.  Almost 600 people attend the event throughout the day. The visitors are hosted by over 100 local volunteers.

“Our guests have the opportunity to participate in hands-on excavation, enjoy the Native American Bearclaw singers and dancers, see a variety of exhibits and demonstrations and much more,” Plano Conservancy Co-Director Russ Kissick added.
