Hands on History: By Land and By Sea - February 19

With a concerted effort to provide more interactive, hands-on opportunities than ever before, Sutter's Fort State Historic Park will present a special "Hands on History: By Land and By Sea" event on Saturday, February 19.

Docents will help Fort visitors understand the two different ways emigrants originally came to California -- by land or by sea -- while sharing the unique challenges they faced and what daily life was like during their journeys. Multiple hands-on activities await Fort visitors as they will help pack a wagon or trunk, make choices about what to bring along for their "journey of a lifetime," learn how to use a nautical compass, try their hand at weaving rope and simple knots, create maps with available resources, and much more.
