Seno Woodland Center to host Woodland Rendezvous May 21-22

The Seno Woodland Education Center is hosting a Spring Woodland Rendezvous, on Saturday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday, May 22, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

A rendezvous is a living historical event where participants celebrate the lives and achievements of our ancestors. Dressed in historically authentic garb and using only historically authentic reproductions of the shelters and tools, they reenact the historical gatherings of frontiersmen and their families exchanging goods and services and enjoying the company of far-flung neighbors before returning to their day-to-day routine.

You will see a pioneer rendezvous compete with a variety of historically authentic games of skill, pioneer crafts, authentic food and trading items. Visitors will see and visit with the pioneers at their campsites as the take a leisurely walk around the beautiful Seno forest trails. Some of the skills demonstrated include wooden toy making, flax processing, woodworking, yarn spinning, trapping, frontier surveyor, music and games.

Admission is $3 for adults and $1 for children 12 and under.

The Seno Woodland Education Center is located on Highway P (McHenry Street) five miles south of Burlington and two miles north of Highway 50, in Wheatland.
