When I heard about this little gem, I couldn’t wait to share. I’m currently in an anthropology program at CSUF and I can’t wait to take my kiddos here.
The San Dieguito Heritage Museum is set to preserve artifacts, records and stories pertaining to the history of the communities of the San Dieguito River area.
The founders had deep roots in the local communities and cherished the uniqueness of the history in the area. They sought to preserve and share this history through a combination of hands-on history experiences as well as traditional exhibits.
The museum will offer history activities for families on Saturdays and Sundays, throughout the 2011-2012 school year. They will be open every weekend beginning in early October and continuing through June of 2012.
Each weekend there will be free hands-on experiences that highlight a certain era of San Dieguito history. These activities will change monthly. The historic eras and correspondin g activities may include:
|* Native American period: Sand painting and acorn grinding|
|* Rancho Period: adobe brick making, cattle roping and soap making|
|* Pioneer Days: butter making, washboard clothes washing and quilt making|
|* Flower Growing Period: seed planting, plant identification and plant dyeing|
|* Surfing and Concern for Ocean Ecology: balsa mini-surfboard shaping, kelp cookie making and ocean awareness experiences

One of my favorite Friday family events is back this Friday. Shark Lagoon Nights take place on Fridays at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach from 6pm to 9pm. You will have the opportunity to touch bamboo sharks and see large sharks such as sandtigers as well as rays in the Aquarium’s Shark Lagoon.
It’s a fun little family outing on Friday night. The only thing you have to pay for is parking. Cash only. If you are in the area make sure to stop by on a Friday night. It’s a super fun little adventure.
