Native American Day - CANCELLED

This program has been cancelled due to Covid.

Join us as we celebrate the history of Native Americans at Yellow Banks Park. Get hands on experience constructing a tipi and try your hand at throwing an atlatl. Don’t know what and atlatl is? Join us and find out. Authentic artifacts collected from the area and rarely seen by the public will be interpreted. The artifacts span over twelve thousand years of history and represent four different cultures. We’ll also take a short hike to the last remaining burial mound in the park.


DEADLINE: Register by Thursday, November 19

COST: Free

AGES: All ages welcome

Our top priority has been and will continue to be the health and well-being of the public and the staff. In response to the ongoing development of COVID-19, Polk County Conservation programs will adhere to social distancing, smaller group size, increased sanitation and facemasks mandatory while outdoors and indoors.
