Time to put on your explorer’s hat! On this Jr. Explorer Adventure kids, ages 7-11, will become part of the Confluence Discovery Team! They’ll dig with us into the history of the confluence land and waters and find out about the people and animals who lived here and learn what traces they’ve left behind. They’ll learn about the archeological dig done right here for Ke-Chunk, a Ho-Chunk village. We’ll touch and learn about ancient fossilized animal bones and ancient tools. Then we’ll head out on an exploration with our metal detectors to see what treasures we can find buried beneath the soil and in the stoney bank of the Rock River and Turtle Creek.

Normally $10 per child – special Heritage Days Price of $5 per child (recommended for ages 7 and up)
