Nov. 9: Hart Museum to Celebrate History of Mighty Oaks

Uploaded: , Thursday, Oct 31, 2019

By Press Release

Come on out to the William S. Hart Park and Museum on Saturday, Nov. 9 and join us in a celebration of the mighty oaks that have shaped our state’s history and biodiversity in countless ways.

This day is packed with fun activities for the whole family. Down at the Ranch House come and learn how to grind and leech acorns in preparation for cooking. Then make your way to the top of the hill and help us gather this year’s acorn crop, discover more about the role of oaks in our ecosystem, spend some time with our visiting squirrel puppets and puppeteers, and plant an acorn to bring home.

The Hart is especially excited to welcome two very special guests, Alan Salazar and Kat High.

Salazar is a member and past chairman of the Council of Elders of the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians. He will share traditional Chumash and Tataviam stories. High is a Hupa descendant who will share insights on her culture’s relationship with the oaks as she leads visitors in the process of acorn gathering.

Day at the Ranch: The Mighty Oak is completely free (donations accepted) and runs from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9. The program will take place in Hart Park near the Hart Museum Ranch House (next to the picnic areas) as well as up the hill behind the Hart Museum Mansion. This is a perfect day for families and children of all ages so don’t miss the chance to come on out and discover more about the natural and cultural history of California’s mighty oaks.

If you would like more information about this event, please contact the Hart Museum at (661) 254-4584 or email the Education Coordinator at mromero@nhm.org.
