Step into the boots of a cowboy or cowgirl for the day! Children will make and throw a lasso, design their ranch’s brand, round up balloons, and hear stories around a lifelike campfire. In addition, children will hear from living historian and award-winning author Lee Anderson about the responsibilities of working ranchers of the Old and New West. Through a gallery exploration, children will apply what they’ve learned by seeing authentic Old West tools of the trade, including spurs, Stetson hats, saddles and ropes. Activities are self-guided; families may drop in at any point during the times listed.
