Farm & Wilderness Field Trip for grades 2-6.

Description

Trek through the wilderness, interact with farm animals, and explore our organic garden- all in a single action-packed day! Farm and Wilderness Exploration invites students to appreciate the connectedness of all life while discovering the unique characteristics and roles of plants and animals on the trail and farm. Students build confidence and develop new insights as they inspect an animal track on the trail, meet a banana slug along the creek, examine critters in the compost pile, or pet a farm animal.
