Balsam Traditions at the Adirondack Museum

The balsam fir tree was an important natural resource for the Adirondack region and continues to play a role in our lives. Our annual Balsam Traditions program teaches students how balsam was used and its economic importance to the region.

•     The program is offered FREE to Adirondack Park homeschools.
•     Support materials are provided.
Balsam Traditions is a fun-filled learning activity for children in grades K – 3, with opportunities to:
. . . experience a traditional Adirondack balsam bee
 . . . identify coniferous trees
. . . make balsam pillows to take home, using a treadle sewing machine
 . . . construct a balsam be in an Adirondack lean-to
 . . . and more!
