Join us for opportunities to explore the season through art projects, live animal visits, sensory experiences, stories, and more! This fall, we’ll use a combination of our Vegetable Garden classroom and outdoor Heckscher Barn space but still keeping our small group atmosphere. Weekly themes will reflect seasonal happenings on the farm and in the forest, so we’ll see the changes of the coming fall! Please note, siblings who are in a baby carrier on a caregiver are welcome, but please make arrangements for any other siblings.  Meets at Heckscher Barn/Garden. Group size limited to 5 children and caregivers. Groups will not share art materials and all materials will be switched or cleaned between sessions. Participants must follow SM&NC COVID protocols in place at time of program.
