Many people know that dream catchers originated from Native Americans. The Ojibwa people started the tradition and over time, dream catchers were adopted by other tribes and cultures. The Ojibwa women made the first dream catchers from willow branches, and these protective charms were hung above children's beds to catch any bad dreams or other harm that might be present.

Defend your dreams by creating your own winter-themed dream catcher! You will follow a step by step demonstration by a naturalist, and all materials will be provided.

$8 per dream catcher.                 Register here.
