Join OSA's Cherie Haury-Artz for one of her original programs, Beyond Food: Ancestral Native American Use of Deer and Bison, at the Tama County Nature Center on June 11, 2024, 11 a.m.

This program is sponsored by Tama County Conservation Board as part of their OWLS (Older, Wiser, Livelier Souls) program series for older adults. These programs are primarily intended for seniors, but all ages are welcome! 

Presentation description:

Hunting was a vital resource for Ancestral Native Americans. Besides essential nutrition, bison and deer provided raw materials for everything from tools and string to musical instruments and beautiful artwork. Archaeology provide a glimpse into the creative uses found for these creatures.
