The free Tidbit Activity Series will continue this summer with new programs. The Museum at the Bighorns is partnering with two organizations this summer to bring new and exciting topics to children attending Tidbit. Since the early 2000s, more than 20,000 students have explored local history and culture through this hands on series.

Tidbit will take place at the museum on the following Tuesdays at 10 AM, each with a different theme:

June 21st- Outdoor Ethics with the U.S. Forest Service. Learn the dos and don’ts of exploring the great outdoors.

July 5th- Pioneer Trails. The Bozeman Trail and other pioneer trails carried people west to new lives in new parts of the country. The United States built forts along many of these trails. Come explore why people decided to move west and learn about their journey.

July 19th- Succulents with Landon's Greenhouse. Come learn about these hearty little plants from people who know them best, the employees of Landon’s Greenhouse!

August 2nd- Ice Cream. The traditional end of the summer Tidbit is back! The kids will learn how to make ice cream at home without needing a machine.

Tidbit will be on the museum’s porch weather permitting. Advanced registration is encouraged because space is limited to 40 children for each activity. Parents or guardians must remain with their children during each program.
