Educational Outreach : Educators and Families – Melissa Keown (Lead Interpreter)

To Educators & Families
Thank you for all that you are doing to support students at this time. Our experiences with you and your students have been historically “in person.” We miss you! So many families have transitioned to eLearning and some are even learning in small cohorts. We encourage you to continue to enjoy and explore the ranch as you are able! We are an outdoor living history museum with experiences for all ages and offering tours (by reservation only) this winter. Private reservations for students and small groups are available. Safety guidelines are in place and will be enforced.

Barnyard Buddies was born last March from the challenge by Living History Association (LHA) board members to find new ways to engage LHA member families during the slower winter months. In spite of Covid, what started as a monthly event has morphed into a successful weekly program. The first Thursday of each month is an expanded outdoor story time that includes crafts, activities and a themed snack. This program requires a reservation and is free for members. Non-members are $3 per child. The other weekly story times are free and currently do not require a reservation. See our online calendar for future dates! Visit the website for reservations or email/call for questions: or 719-578-6777
