Outdoor Adventures: Heckscher Farm Evening Tour - FULL
Friday, October 20, 5:30 - 6:30 pm
Ever wonder what the animals do when the farmers go
home? Join us for a special after-hours tour of Heckscher
Farm and visit with some of your favorite animals after the
gates close. We'll go in-pasture with our goats, see where
the horses and sheep sleep, give a treat to our llamas, and
more. We'll end our tour with a cup of hot, local apple cider!
Recommended for 4 and up.
Outdoor Adventures: Full Moon Hike
Sunday, December 3, 5-6:30 pm
Discover the almost-winter world of nocturnal creatures by the light of the last full moon of 2017. We'll head out on to the SM&NC's nature trails at dusk

We'll learn about the phases of
the moon and see what
animals are out and
about during sunset.
