Our Big Backyard


In this approximately 2 hour program, students will experience a total feast for the senses as they explore our working living history farm museum. Meet our farm animals, search for signs of wildlife, and use all five senses to discover our farmyard. Students will also learn about what animals need to survive and how we can provide those things for wild and domestic animals here at the farm.
