Ever get hungry while exploring outside? Well, there’s plenty of indigenous greens all around you that are also edible and nutritious. Join us this week for a hunt around the museum and help me find edible greens for my salad. Watch me eat whatever we collect and I’ll let you know if you made me a good salad or a great one! Have you ever considered what grows all around us? From food to technology, medicine to spirituality, nature can truly provide us with everything we need. Starting May 1st to the end of August at Children's Hour, we are focusing traditional uses of indigenous plants.

Children’s Hour at Tomaquag Museum is a FREE public program held every Wednesday morning from 10:00-11:00 am for children of all ages. Each week features a different interactive lesson. Through music, dance, storytelling, crafts and Narragansett language, museum educators focus on Indigenous New England history, culture and art.
