On the 1st & 3rd Mondays of each month, drop-in for a 30-minute story time and songs as part of your regular admission, NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
Then on the 2nd & 4th Mondays each month, be sure to register so you don’t miss out on our 90 minute Club Chickadee programs with games, activities, a craft, and hands-on learning experiences.

Our Saturday Family programming offers multiple weekend opportunities for families to participate in the farm activities. Each season will have an event, an educational program, and a guided hike. Our staff provides the opportunity for your family to embrace what makes each season unique as they highlight a special part of the farm. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to experience the farm together.
