Assist with Habitat Restoration at Duke Farms and learn Stewardship on a smaller scale at your own home.
Sprouts: Young Explorers is a one-hour program held from 10:00-11:00am one Thursday per month. Each session will include a book, an environmentally based activity or two, and time outside for exploring. Younger siblings may join us, but please remember to register and dress appropriately. An adult must accompany their child, make sure everyone bundles up in the winter and early spring months. After class, we hope you investigate our exhibits, further enjoy our children’s literature and resources available in Story Grove and continue to capture the beauty of our natural setting.
Children ages 3-6 and their adult caregivers are invited to join us for a 90-minute nature themed monthly program. This class meets one Saturday per month from 9:30-11:00am. Each month our “sprouts” will use their senses to connect to the natural world through nature stories, short hikes, songs and nature crafts. Younger siblings may join us, but please remember to register and dress appropriately. An adult must accompany their child, make sure everyone bundles up in the winter and early spring months.
Join a Duke Farms’ educator to learn why Duke Farms is “For the Birds!” Through games and activities, we will explore the fascinating life histories of birds and delve into topics such as bird biology, adaptations for flight, behavior, diets and habitats. Part of each program is spent indoors exploring the topic of the month and then we go outdoors to identify and observe birds in the field. This program will run rain or shine, so please dress for the weather, bring a refillable water bottle, and be prepared to walk between one and two miles with varying trail conditions. Binoculars will be provided.
