Education

Imagine standing in the footsteps of our region’s earliest inhabitants. Discover why prehistoric foragers camped at Meadowcroft Rockshelter and learn about their hunter-gatherer lifestyle when staying at this site more than 16,000 years ago. Take in the views of our archaeological excavation as you explore their lives, and the Rockshelter’s place in the archaeological pursuit of the First Americans.

Hands-on educational programs at Meadowcroft allow students to explore the history of life on the land in the upper Ohio Valley. Facilities are also available for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and other youth groups for overnight camping experiences.

We offer a variety of tours and educational experiences for children and adults of all ages. Please contact Fran Skariot, visitor services manager, at 724-587-3412 or frskariot@heinzhistorycenter.org for more information and to make reservations.
