NATURE EXPLORERS

Ages: Completed Kindergarten, first grade or second grade
To register on-line click here or call the farm office at 570-992-6161.

Come and learn what kids did on the farm in the 1800’s. After the chores were done there was time for fun and the whole farm to explore! Everything around us changes. Some things in nature change quickly and dramatically while others change slowly over many years. This week on the farm, we will study butterflies, frogs, oak trees and more! Crafts, stories and adventure await at Quiet Valley as we explore the magic of metamorphosis and growth. There will be plenty of time for petting the farm animal and jumping in the hay. Snacks will be provided.

Come and learn what the older kids did on the farm in the 1800’s.  Sure, there were chores to do, animals to take care of and garden vegetables to grow and eat, but, as the saying goes:  “All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy”.  With the whole farm and surrounding area to explore, you never know what there is to do next!  You can be sure that there will be games, songs, stories, hay jumps, hiking, wagon rides and traditional hand cranked ice cream on Friday!
