Spring? Not Feelin' It

Well, it’s officially spring, but it doesn’t feel very springy to me. March is winding down with cold weather, but on the Trails of History, signs of life are everywhere. So here’s a wrap-up of activities between now and the end of the month. And yes, this is mostly recycled material from the monthly program preview. Guess I’m feeling “green” after all.

Daniel Boone Homestead
March 24: A Pennsylvania German Easter and Spring Nature Program—celebrate spring, learn about traditional Easter customs, and participate in an egg hunt (plus more). Admission is $4 for ages 3 and older. Noon-4 pm.

Drake Well Museum
March 30: Drake’s Birthday—in honor of Edwin Drake’s birthday, the curator and educator will lead a special tour of the museum’s new exhibits (and there will be cake!). Tour begins at 1 pm. Also, the monthly meeting and demonstrations of the Oil Valley Blacksmiths (last Saturday of every month through October). 9 am-2 pm. Both are included in regular museum admission.

Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum
March 23: Heirloom Seed Project Grafting Workshop—for anyone who’s wanted to learn how to graft apple varieties, this program, a collaboration between the HSP and the Backyard Fruit Growers, is it. For $30, you get instruction, hands-on practice, and scion and rootstock to take home with you. Registration is required, so call today to see if you can join in—717/569-0401 x 204.

Old Economy Village
Through May 25: Beaver County Tourist Days—OEV is welcoming the neighbors, inviting county residents to enjoy free admission and get to know the site. This offer is being made on a rolling basis, depending on residents’ zip code. If you’re a Beaver County resident (or know someone who is), go here to see when your free days fall.
March 23: Easter Egg Hunt—children ages 10 and under, along with their families, will explore the historic site while hunting for Easter eggs. Crafts, treats, a visit with the Easter bunny, and a family membership raffle are also on the menu. March 20 was the registration deadline, but call 724/266-4500 x101 to see if there’s space available. 9-11 am.

Have a great weekend!
