Aullwood’s famous Summer Earth Adventures are coming soon! Our theme this year is “The Aullwood Effect”! Build a beaver dam, search for tiny bugs and other aquatic critters in ponds
and streams or learn how to keep our Earth green and clean! Help with animal care at the farm, learn how to cook with produce from the garden, or create some nature-themed artwork! 2018 is the “Year of the Bird”. We will celebrate birds by learning about them and also by helping them. The Aullwood Effect is the idea that birds passing over our beautiful, green and lush property will stop by for the day to explore, eat, and perhaps catch the eye of a hiker. During these Summer Earth Adventure sessions we will spend time in the prairie looking for big grasshoppers, stick our hands deep in the mud to find frogs, or wade in the streams to find crayfish the same way birds do.
Class themes are developed around the child’s age and abilities and include hands-on activities, crafts, and games for children age 2 through 8th grade. Children attend weekly classes – topics and hours vary. The schedule of classes is available now.
