Sweetgrass Summer

August 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Sweetgrass, known for its sweet scent, has been used throughout history by Native Americans from several tribes, including the Omaha, Ponca, Kiowa, Dakota, Lakota, Blackfeet, Cheyenne, Pawnee, and Winnebago tribes. Sweetgrass has both perfume and medicinal qualities, meaning that it could be used for various purposes, including hair and body wash, or as a tea to treat a sore throat.

The Blue River Basin Sweetgrass company will offer free, hands-on sweetgrass braiding on August 20 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. where you can learn more about this special native plant. Along with the sweetgrass program, there will also be stations on buck skinning and tanning and Indian Flutes, as well as music by Paul Siebert. Come join us in the Hornady Family Arbor for these educational and fun activities!
