About Friends on the Farm: Winter Afterschool Series

Winter Adaptations: Survival of the Fittest

Come join us at the farm as we explore animal life in preperation for winter!

In this 3-week session we will learn how animals and the environment adapt to cold winter months and why the fittest survive.

Each week we will participate in hands-on STEAM learning activities while maintaining social distance. We will observe and explore animal life here at Powisset, tracking wild animals who live on the farm, learn how our resident farm animals prepare for winter, spend time in our state-of-the-art teaching kitchen to bake individual snacks to bring home and build winter habitats for our animal friends to survive the winter cold.

This drop-off class is designed for children ages 7-11. Class is limited to 10 students to allow for social distancing.

*Please note, due to staff: child ratio restrictions, we cannot book children under the age of 7 for this program.*
