Education program seeks donations for Children’s Cabin

BRADENTON — Manatee Village Historical Park is expanding its education program to include new material and more age groups. This includes a new hands-on children’s area with a miniature replica log cabin, which will be open to the public by June.

The park’s education department is requesting child-sized wooden benches or chairs and a rope maker of any make for this purpose. Anyone who possess one of these items and would like to make a donation, please contact Stephanie Pragnell, education coordinator of the Manatee Village Historical Park at 749-7165.

The Manatee Village Historical Park is always looking for volunteers and interns for its gift shop, docent and education programs. Anyone interested may call Dean Dixon at 749-7165.
