WOODBURY – Students in grades kindergarten through fifth while out of school on Tuesday, November 7th for Election Day, are invited to experience a “Flanders Explore Nature Adventure!”
Children will be hiking the trails to discover the amazing wildlife at Flanders learning facts, stories and the history of animals getting ready for the long winter months. Are the geese getting ready to migrate? What animals are growing thick winter coats? There will be a visit to the farm to see all of the animals and to the Botany Pond and Hidden Brook. The day will be packed with exploring the great outdoors, and age appropriate stories, games and art projects!
Then on Veteran’s Day, Friday, November 10, all area students in grades kindergarten through fifth are welcomed to attend “Pumpkin Mania!” where they will hike to the barn to learn all about and choose and decorate their own pumpkins as well as visit with the farm animals.
Both days will be packed with exploring the great outdoors, and age appropriate stories, games and art projects!
