Soar in 4 is a free event open to Manatee County students and their families held at the Bishop Museum of Science and Nature. Each month a new ‘spotlight book’ will be featured, which each family will receive to take home. Families participate in activities to learn how to use various materials to support the ‘spotlight book,’ as well as incorporate take-home items to continue to play, create, learn, and explore at home together.

The mission of Manatee Village Historical Park is “to preserve and share the heritage of Manatee County’s founding period (1840-1918).” We present lectures on a wide range of topics related to our mission, including pioneer history in Florida, historic preservation, the history of Manatee Village Historical Park, and more!
