GCV&M Prepares for WinterMumford, N.Y. -- 


Preparing for Winter, Saturday, November 21, 10 am-3 pm

·         Watch the village busily prepare for the colder months with spinning, candle-making, and warm winter woolens.

·         Enjoy food tastings, like chestnuts roasting on an open fire, or purchase some tasty items in our historic Confectionery!

·         Understand the labor of preparing food for winter with butchering, smoking, and sausage-making demonstrations.

·         Enjoy story telling with Tonia Galban, from the Mohawk Nation Bear Clan. She will share Native American stories about the woodland animals and the fall nighttime skies.

·         Join our Nature Center staff to learn all about what birds do to prepare for winter, as well as how you can help them get through the winter! Play games, do interactive crafts, and watch a demo on how to create a bird house at home.

·         Watch historic and contemporary craft demonstrations and if you're inspired by the handmade gift-making you see, then get in on the fun at home by purchasing take-and-make seasonal and holiday craft kits

Additional information:
