Junior Ranger Program: Oxen: Strong, Slow and Thick Skinned

Date(s) - 10/28/2018
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Oxen are the unsung heroes of the California Trail. Oxen are smart, strong, obedient, and if you wound up in a desperate situation, they were delicious.

Due to their reliability and low cost, oxen were the preferred wagon haulers for most pioneers. Join Park Ranger Greg Feathers and learn how oxen were used on the California Trail. To conclude the program, junior rangers will drive their own “ox team” through a fun and challenging obstacle course.

This is a free event.
