Free Family Activities at the San Dieguito Heritage Museum

Every Saturday and Sunday in April 2014.    Noon to 4pm FREE!

For the month of April, the San Dieguito Heritage Museum presents the history of cacti and succulents in the San Dieguito area.

The Kumeyaay Native Americans utilized these plants for everything from clothing and shelter to even food. Succulents survive on very little water and thrive in the dry California climate. Succulents will continue to be popular plants in the future as water conservation becomes a must.

While visitors learn about the role of succulents, they will be decorating a pot and planting a few succulents to take home. What a great starter activity for kids who are interested in history and horticulture.

The activity is offered Saturdays and Sundays in April from 12:00pm-4:00pm. The location is 450 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas. (760) 632-9711. Call 760-632-9711 or visit for more information.

The San Dieguito Heritage Museum will continue to offer free history activities for families on Saturdays and Sundays, through June 2014.  Each weekend there will be free hands-on experiences that highlight a certain era of San Dieguito history. These activities will change monthly. The historic eras and corresponding activities may include:

  • * Native American period: Sand painting and acorn grinding
  • * Rancho Period: adobe brick making, cattle roping and soap making
  • * Pioneer Days: butter making, washboard clothes washing and quilt making
  • * Flower Growing Period: seed planting, plant identification and plant dyeing
  • * Surfing and Concern for Ocean Ecology: balsa mini-surfboard shaping, kelp cookie making and ocean awareness experiences

The activities are offered Saturdays and Sundays in throughout the year from 12:00pm-4:00pm. The location is 450 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas. (760) 632-9711.


The Museum's exhibits will also be open during the activity times with docents to guide you through the history of San Dieguito. With these new intergenrational activities, families in the Sandieguito area will come to understand they can visit the Musuem on any weekend and know that new and interesting experiences await.
