  • Other Groups - $5 per person

**Appointment availability varies. Also, due to limited staff availability, we require a two week notice for tour scheduling. Family group guided tours are $50 each, regardless of family size.

Youth and Scout Groups: We will work with you to make your time here informative, fun, and unforgettable. Overnight campouts can be arranged. We can offer a variety of activities to suit your needs.

Non-School or Family Groups: You can participate in the same activities as school groups or we will work with you to tailor your visit to your individual needs.

Students take an outdoor interpretive hike and an indoor tour of the museum where they learn how flint was formed, where it's found, its properties, and how it was used. Students will get the chance to use the ancient pump drill to make a shell necklace, learn how to throw a 6 foot dart with the atlatl (an ancient hunting weapon), and knap a piece of flint into an arrowhead.

Shelter Rental

For Reservations contact Alex Crews: flintridgenaturepreserve@gmail.com

  • Our shelter has an electric hook-up - enough to power crock pots, roasters and electric equipment. It also has 8 picnic tables that will seat 8-10 people each. Water is available at the drinking fountain at the trailhead. Two charcoal grills are available at the shelter, one at each end.

  • Cost of renting the shelter for an event is $50 per day.

* Getting Married?

Why not have your special event out in nature. We have (8) tables and chairs you can rent also.

* Family Reunion coming up?

Flint Ridge is a perfect venue! There is plenty of room for games and for $15 per activity, we can provide activities such as atlatl, pump drills and knapping flint. These are for everyone, not just the kids.

* Car Club or Motorcycle Group?

Looking for a mid-day stopping place to have lunch? The shelter would be perfect. We're only three miles from Old Route 40 and four miles from State Route 70. If you come on Saturday or Sunday, add the museum to your stop.
