Mound House Visit

46

Beach Elementary students visited the Mound House on Estero Bay Tuesday morning and got a chance to try their hand at throwing an atlatl, a special tool used by the Calusa to create higher velocity when throwing a spear. Students also learned about other tools used by the Calusa with the help of Mound House staff and volunteers. The Mound House at 451 Connecticut Street, Fort Myers Beach is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from 9am-4pm.
