Activities will include classroom instruction, a hands-on demonstration in friction fire starting, a guided tour of the Caddo Mound site, and atlatl throwing for those who wish to test their skill.

There is a $2 charge for the program, which includes a tour of the Caddo Mounds site. Seating is limited; please call 936.858.3218 to indicate interest in attending.
