MVAC’s Connie Arzigian will be demonstrating the atlatl at the Whitewater Valley Archaeology and History Festival between noon and 3 pm. Come and practice your skills with the atlatl. Celebrate the fascinating history of the Whitewater Valley! Through demonstrations, hands-on activities and special guest presenters, visitors will be transported back in time. Hike the historic Elba Fire Tower or take a self-guided walk through a nearby pioneer cemetery. Try your hand at atlatl throwing, paddling a canoe or making twine from wood nettle fibers. Check out flint knapping demonstrations and the kids and play pioneer games. End the day with a guided walk around the former Civilian Conservation Corps camp and home of the German POWs who stayed here. Pick up a schedule at the park office.
Directions: Located 3 miles south of Elba on State Highway 74.
