Bring Dad and the whole family and learn from Olivas Adobe Historical Interpreters how to rope a steer, track an animal, create an adobe brick and discover more about California’s “Rancho” period in history this Father's Day at the Olivas Abode in Ventura at 4200 Olivas Park Drive.
Part of the periodic Olivas Adobe Family Sundays series, this FREE family friendly event will cover historic aspects of adobe living. It’s also your last chance to see the new brood of Great Horned Owls as they fledge and take flight. Costumed Junior Docents lead tours of the adobe.
