Check out ECHO Rangers!
The Ormond Beach Historical Society is pleased to announce that we are again participating in Volusia County’s ECHO Ranger program. Designed for children in grades 1 through 5, the program introduces young people and their parents to the Ecological, Cultural, Heritage and Outdoor opportunities in our county.
This year OBHS will conduct the ECHO Ranger program on:
Saturday, February 27, 2016 from 1:45p.m. to 3p.m.
We will continue to have our “Afternoons in Ormond” with the Casements and the Ormond Art Museum having their ECHO Ranger programs during the morning on the same dates.
The OBHS program features tours of artifacts, old auto racing photos and more, on display at the Anderson-Price Memorial Building, information on early Ormond plantation owners and colonists, an outside tour of nearby historical buildings such as the Pilgrim’s Rest Baptist Church, The Ormond Yacht Club and the Riverside (old Union) Church. Come find out whom John Andrew Bostrom, Aunt Nell Pinkerton and Barney Oldfield were!
In addition to our program, there are a wide variety of ECHO Ranger programs at parks, museums, historical sites and libraries throughout Volusia County. Activities are scheduled on weekends from September through May and last 1-3 hours.
