November’s theme, Brilliant Brown, will include seasonally themed take-home crafts and activities that use natural colors and materials. The program takes place at Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site, and runs from 1 to 4 p.m.
This is a great opportunity for children to create unique crafts and participate in a historically themed program. Families can choose to drop by and participate anytime from 1-4 p.m. No reservations required. Garden tours are offered at 2:30 p.m., and house tours are available from 1-5 p.m. Creation Station continues in January, on the first Saturday of the month, through June.
About the Rancho:
Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds of Rancho Los Cerritos echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern, urban society it is today. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. It is owned by the City of Long Beach and operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation.
