Pumpkins created from socks and a history scavenger hunt are the highlights of a free children's craft and learning event at Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park on Saturday.
The scavenger hunt sends participants around the park to its various historic buildings, following clues that teach about Douglas County history and agriculture, drawing comparisons and making connections between life today and in the past. Small prizes will be awarded to everyone who completes the hunt.
In addition to the scavenger hunt, Genoa resident Alma Buehlmaier, an experienced craft artist, writer, painter, and photographer, will lead a crafts activity for children, using socks and other materials to make pumpkin-themed art. Participants may keep their creations.
While the activities are geared towards ages 8-10, all youth 15 and younger can participate, and parent or guardian supervision is required. All craft supplies, as well as snacks and Halloween candy, will be provided at no charge.
The activities take place outdoors and begin at 10 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m.. Anyone planning to attend is encouraged to RSVP by writing to or calling 775-783-9417, but reservations are not required, and everyone is welcome.
The park is located at 1450 Highway 88, a half mile south of Douglas High School.
