Winchester, Virginia - The Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum is partnering with the Native American Church of Virginia (Sanctuary on the Trail™) to help involve children, parents, families, businesses and the community in learning about Native American Indians past and present.
The Discovery Museum is the first green rooftop in Winchester, Va. and the first user-friendly, hands-on, interactive center for informal education in the area.
One of the first initiatives involves helping bring “The Gathering” to the area. The Gathering is an educational celebration of agri-culture that includes a Native American Harvest Dance; Virginia Gourd Festival; Kidz Harvest Fest; Living History Exhibitors; Military Veteran and Uniformed Services Tribute; Trader's Village; and Multicultural Thanksgiving Oct. 30 - Nov. 1 at the Clarke County Fairgrounds.
The Discovery Museum offers a rich program aimed at enhancing children’s education through encountering, action, exploring and green observation. The three story building hosts everything from a paleo park, to apple packing and water shed, to Leo’s (Leonardo) corner to Moccasin Trail and open sky observation deck.
More meeting are planned and new and exciting things are on the horizon.
