Anyone (yes, you!) can participate in this annual event by helping us count and identify birds. We will be participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), which is a citizen-science project that helps ornithologists take a snapshot of bird populations. Our educators will guide you through the whole process from the comfort of our Discovery Room! Bring binoculars if you have them. Co-sponsored by the Washington Crossing Audubon Society.
Celebrate the Sugar Maple and the magic it brings to your table. Participate in activities focused on tree identification, climate change, the history of maple sugaring, and learn about the entire maple sugaring process with Duke Farms Executive Director Michael Catania.

You will receive an email that says the event begins at 10:00, but please plan to arrive at the registration time you chose when reserving tickets. Check in at the front of the Orientation Center to get started and go at your own pace.

This bright version of the classic children’s fairy tale has all the charm of the original story and all of the familiar characters: Cinderella and her stepsisters, the mean stepmother, the Fairy Godmother and, of course, the handsome prince. But Porter and Perry have added extra charm to their version. Simple, spry musical numbers add sparkle... and Cinderella has acquired a faithful dog, Rover, who is given the power of speech by the Fairy Godmother. Shows at 11am & 1pm.
