In the wake of the flash flooding that impacted so many in Western Dane County, the families of Academy of Little Vikings in Mount Horeb took the initiative to raise funds in support of a family-oriented community resource that they wanted to see recover and continue to thrive. The outcome of that effort is truly incredible! One November 15th, 2018, Brenda Fritz, the Administrator of Academy of Little Vikings, presented a check for $1200.00 to Black Earth Children's Museum Founder Karen Carlock. Karen said "We are so incredibly touched by the generosity of the families of Little Vikings. It is so wonderful to have the support of our local communities. We look forward to being able to put this toward one of our planned exhibit enhancement projects so that we can continue to provide an enriching space for the families we serve." The Black Earth Children's Museum is truly one of a kind - it is one of the only "small-town" children's museum in the nation and was built by and with support from the local communities that surround it. The around 20,000 visitors and nearly 400 members-families of the Black Earth Children's Museum have demonstrated that resources and activities in smaller, rural areas can not only survive but thrive! Academy of Little Vikings and Black Earth Children's Museum support what we hope is a further shift toward connected communities where people have access to both essential and enriching services while also feeling a sense of place and belonging.
