The Long Island Cultural History Lab and Museum organizes in-school and library programs and fields schools designed to teach children about Long Island native and colonial life. Activities in these programs include archaeological excavations and reconstructions of colonial life, such as black-smithing, doing carpentry with antique tools, spinning and weaving, and cooking with period tools. An annual native technology workshop is open to the public, and two summer archaeological field schools are held in June and July every year.
