KUMEYAAY IPAI INTERPRETIVE CENTER AT PAUWAI (Sunday only)
Take a one-hour Guided Tour on Sunday, April 14! The 5-acre Kumeyaay Ipai Interpretive Center at Pauwai features a demonstration garden representing local plant life as the Kumeyaay knew it 2,000 years ago. This authentic habitat site includes a hillside walk for the adventurous explorer. You will be guided along this trail by knowledgeable docents where you can run your fingers over deep acorn grinding holes, peer into accurate representation of native huts (ewaas) and breathe in California's signature aromas of sage and pine. Learn about how plants were used for food, clothing, shelter and medicines (ethnobotany) and behold this special site where you can truly envision how this land looked so long ago.
This special extended, comprehensive tour is being offered exclusively for the Garden Tour. The cost will be $10 and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the City of Poway for the Kumeyaay Ipai Interpretive Center. Buy your tickets early as we expect that this will sell out quickly.
