Saturday, October 7, is the final Family Day at the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch for the season. It will be a fun day filled with games and experiences of life on an 1800s ranch, where Will Rogers was born Nov. 4, 1879.
Special hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The ranch is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Nov. 11, when winter hours change to Wednesday through Sunday. Special Family Day events will return in April. Admission is by donation.
Robert Gibbs, Rogers County Soil Conservation Service educator, will return with his demonstration of natural resources and collection of creatures that play an important role in conservation.
Ranch Manager Jacob Krumwiede and Lucas Morrison, assistant education coordinator, will have a carpentry station. The horseshoe pit will be set up along with 19th-century games. As always, Will’s birthplace home will be open and there will be animals to pet or just wander around the ranch and the Amish-style barn.
