Harvest season is upon us, and we’re sure to start seeing the beautiful decorations and crafts that are made from nature that always remind us of fall. You can even create some yourself, like the quintessential Corn Husk Doll, and we’ll show you how! During this Autumnal craft program, you will learn some of their history and symbolism of the Corn Husk Dolls - who made them, when, why, and how?

You will take part in a socially-distanced craft activity to create your very own Corn Husk Doll, with the live instruction of an Environmental Educator. All materials will be provided, and you can take your doll with you to decorate your home. This program will take place outdoors. Best for ages 6+.
