  2. Marvelous Mud Summer Camp

    For children entering grades 3-5 in fall 2021. At the end of a summer day, if a child isn’t dirty, there is something missing! Dirt is teeming with life, and is often the sign of a good time. In this camp we will dig into underground ecosystems - exploring different habitats to discover who and what is underfoot. We will investigate different kinds of soil we have in the park and, of course, play in the mud!

  5. Virtual - 2021 Speaker Series: Chesapeake ReMatriation: Piscataway Womanly Culture

    June 24, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Virtual with Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum

    Speaker: Gabrielle Tayac, Ph.D. (Piscataway) Associate Professor of Public History, Department of History and Art History, George Mason University. Indigenous cultural worldviews balanced feminine and masculine cycles in every aspect of life. Colonial and later assimilative policies sharply decimated these traditions. This presentation will first explore historic tribal losses and then celebrate revitalizations that have surged over the past 50 years. Rematriation is a newly expressed term that brings back wellbeing based on very old Piscataway values that honor environmental and human interdependence. In these times, both awareness and ethical practices benefit all Marylanders.
