FLORENCE – The Florence Indian Mound Museum, in partnership with the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area, is hosting a series of children’s activities that help students investigate the early culture of the Shoals area through interactive learning. These programs will cover a wide range of topics and are suitable for an elementary level age group. They will focus on Native American history and culture, and they will have a creative component. The students will engage in hands-on learning. All events are free.

The program on crawfish will take place Saturday, July 20 at 10am.

This learning exercise will explore the role of the crawfish in Native American mythology and look at how the crawfish fits into the Tennessee River ecosystem in the Shoals. Students will read a story and work on an interactive activity that will become a part of our exhibit at the Florence Indian Mound Museum.

This program is sponsored by the city of Florence Department of Arts and Museums and the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area. The Florence Indian Mound Museum is located at 1028 S. Court St. Florence, AL. It is open Tuesday - Saturday from 10am-4pm and Sundays from 1-4pm. Call 256-760-6427 for more information.
