Silverwood Science Discovery
Welcome Lakeside Fourth Graders!
Barona Cultural Center & Museum is excited to partner with the San Diego Audubon Society (SDAS) through the Silverwood Science Discovery program. We’re excited to share information with you to help you with your research project and we encourage you to visit Barona Cultural Center & Museum to learn more about our Kumeyaay culture and our connection to this land.
New to the Silverwood Science Discovery Program is learning about us, Kumeyaay People, the first inhabitants of this region. We enjoyed an expert mastery of the land and its many ecological zones. We cared for oak groves, planted gardens, managed controlled burns, and hunted for deer and rabbit. Silverwood Science Discovery curriculum now includes the importance of our native animals and how we use them. Students will also learn how to pronounce their animals in our native language, ‘Iipay Aa.
Barona Museum would like to thank Kumeyaay elder and language specialist Pat Curo for his time and assistance.
