A Land Remembered and The Yearling, two of Florida’s most beloved literary treasures, describe in vivid detail the struggle to survive in pioneer-era Florida. Immokalee Pioneer Museum is on the historic homesteading property of the Roberts family, early pioneers of Immokalee who had to rely on each other and the small community around them to survive in the rugged landscape of what is now eastern Collier County. During Spring Homeschool Day 2023, your students will be able to learn about the history of pioneer-era Florida through the lens of the classic Florida literary adventures and the real-life pioneers who called Collier County home. Featuring hands-on experiences related to cattle ranching, food production, gardening, and daily chores, there will be something for all ages to enjoy!
Important note: This is a drop-in style event! It is not required to arrive at 10AM nor stay for the full 3 hours.

Three times a year, Collier County Museums hosts a day where homeschoolers of all ages will be able to come for free educational programing geared toward their specific age groups. We will have preschool, elementary, and middle/high school appropriate activities based on that Homeschool Day’s theme. With a focus on combining history and STEM (we like to call it SHTEM!), Collier County Museums aims to provide your homeschooler with a holistic approach to learning about our region’s history. Homeschool Days will cycle through our five museums, so your family has an opportunity to get to know all of them!
