WOODBURY — Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust invites parents and their children 5 years and younger for a series of preschool programs on Friday mornings this fall.
Nature School is designed to encourage young children to explore nature, discover art and learn about farming. A story time, nature walk and craft are all part of this fun hour.
Fall topics for nature school include Mammal Mania! on September 13, Birds of a Feather on October 11 and Winter Survival on November 1. These programs will meet from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Flanders Trail House.
Preschoolers and their caretakers are invited to Flanders Farm School where children can be “a farmer for the day,” visiting and helping feed the animals at Flanders’ North Barn.
Farm School is presented as a unique opportunity for young children to experience and learn about farm animals close up. Pigs will be the theme on September 27, Harvest Time will be the theme on October 25 and Feathered Friends will be the theme on November 8.
Farm School activities will take place from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Flanders North Barn, 644 Flanders Rd.
The cost for each program session is $5 for child and caregiver for Flanders members and $10 for non-members. Moms groups, play dates and day cares are welcome. More details and preregistration is available online or by calling 203-263-3711, ext. 12.
