Bushy Hill Nature Center

Groups are transported back in time to view the daily living skills of different Native American cultures. Exhibits illustrate the life and technologies in prehistoric Connecticut, the contact period of seventeenth century New England, and showcase the plains culture. Hands-on activities include using a bow drill to make fire, making rope from plant fibers, shooting arrows at buffalo and deer targets, making a debris hut in the woods, and more. Program can be tailored to all groups PreK through high school and is offered all year, both on-site or at schools. Other programs include an active exploration of wetland habitats, a team building course, and maple sugaring.
