School Tours

In Idaho the 3rd grade is when students learn the grand history of their state.  Education is paramount to the DCHS and we are fortunate to be able to share our treasures with educators in the area.  Because of the restrictions of Covid we have adjusted our program to still provide this education while meeting the current restrictions.  

We are in need of Docents for the 2022-2023 school year program.  If you are interested please visit the Volunteer page for more details.


Read below to see how we are currently partnering with our local educators to share the history of the Dry Creek!
