On the Road with the Sherwood Historical Society

videoSherwood Historical Society President June Reynolds doesn't just teach at Sherwood. She teaches everywhere. On a trip through the State of Oregon, the lesson will be about the people, the flora and the fauna of the Pacific Northwest. Every turn along the highway, it seems, will take you to a place she's already visited years ago. She will introduce you to folks as genuine and down home as the people we see in this video.

The Oregon Trail Interpretation Center at Baker is a true work of art. However, I don't buy the total lack of joy expressed in the manikins' faces. From certain angles, you'd think you were watching the Bataan death march.

If they had stayed at home on their 19th century farms, the work could have been almost as difficult. (Or so goes the argument.)

Where did you find the beaver?

Lilly Morgen said...

Well, Mr. List, I guess I will tell this "tail." There was a State Park
Ranger at the camp with many wonderful skins of animals, all killed by cars on the highway. I am hoping to get some from the state wildlife office in Salem to use to teach about animals. My critter was a Beaver and he had a leather-like fish scale tail that was very interesting. Did you know that when Beavers are out of the water, they sit on their tail?

JayCee said...

Well, Mrs. Reynolds? When shall we confess that the beaver was not alive when you wrestled with him. That beaver was dead as a door nail already when she borrowed it from a Park Ranger.
