Of all the educational offerings provided by Churchville Nature Center, perhaps the most unique is our Lenape Village: a hands-on, living history exhibit that gives students and other members of the community the opportunity to experience first-hand what is was like to live in our area as a Native American, just before contact with European settlers.
Private tours and programs can be booked by contacting Marge Custer, Director of Lenape Programs:
215-357-4005, ext. 5039
Public programs offered have included guest lecturers, Native American Storytelling, basket making, clay bead making, and much more! Public tours of the Village during the summer are every 3rd Sunday, with a different special topic featured each month.
Students engaged in these programs learn from a series of interpretive stations that focus on horticulture, family life, hunting skills, fire making, pottery, food and cooking, and cordage (the making of strings and ropes from natural materials) -- all designed and presented by our dedicated staff of educators.
Reservations begin May 1 for the next school year.
