Feathered Friends

Chickadees, owls, and woodpeckers - oh my! Through games and activities we’ll learn what makes owls fly silently, how woodpeckers avoid brain damage and why birds have different shaped beaks. We will even learn to speak bird language!

Flowers and Leaves

Spring is such a colorful season at Cedar Dell Forest Farm! We’ll go on a baby plant scavenger hunt, eat lunch under the shade of spring leaves (weather permitting) do some gardening, and plant seeds to take home. We’ll explore flowers by dissecting some to look at all the parts and learn how bees communicate to find the sweetest ones.

Wild Water

We’ll explore all the water at Cedar Dell Forest Farm, including puddles, marshy areas, and seasonal and year-round creeks. Where does the rainwater go? What lives in the creek? We’ll do some science experiments to learn how water travels underground, make sure our farm animals have fresh, clean water, and make beautiful watercolor art.

Forest Legends

From gnomes and fairies, to clever raven and trickster coyote, there are many stories to be told about the forest. We will explore the forest looking for magical places and imagining how others interacted with the land long ago. We will build fairy and gnome homes and practice telling our own stories through art and play.

Animal Babies

Cuteness abounds! We’ll look and listen for signs of baby animals on the forest farm. We may find baby birds in the trees, tadpoles in the creek, and domestic animals on the farm. We’ll explore the many ways forest and farm babies grow, communicate, and are cared for by their parents. The day will include some some baby animal crafts and we may even build our own cozy bird nest.
