|Women's History Celebration on March 27 at Ernie Miller Nature Center|
The event is called the Women's History Celebration and is for ages six and older. As part of the program, interpreters will portray famous historical women including Rachel Carson, Amelia Earhart, Julia Butterfly Hill, Alligator Annie Miller, Sojourner Truth, Isadora Duncan, Carry Nation, and Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts. These adventurers, explorers, and rebels used their individuals talents and strengths to overcome hardship and adversity. In so doing, they opened doors for women and made the world a better place for all. Let their "her-stories" inspire you, then explore nontraditional careers with some accomplished women of today and celebrate with creative activities honoring women.
