Society has decided to have the home tour

“I DIG BENICIA”

 

**********NOTICE**********NOTICE**********NOTICE**********

 

Due to on-going air quality concerns, and for the safety and comfort of our guests and volunteers,

I DIG BENICIA!, originally scheduled for Saturday, October 14, has been canceled.

We hope to reschedule the event for the spring, when activities can once again be held outdoors.

This was a highly anticipated event, and we apologize for the disappointment.

The safety of the children is our most important concern.

Thank you for your understanding.


 

Learn about Archaeology and Benicia's rich history as you try your hand at excavating artifacts, making Native American art, reconstructing old pots, Mexican corn grinding, making clay pots, and more! You will dig it!
