Monday

Farm Days

Learn where our food comes from and how we get it as we spend the day learning about our farm friends! Activities include horse rides, collecting eggs, seeing chicks hatch, and grooming the animals!

Wednesday

Birds

We'll be soaring around the park learning about the birds that call Fragile Planet their home. Get ready for an adventure as we build binoculars and search for birds, build wings to wear, and get our pictures taken with the owl!

Friday

Plants and Pollinators

Did you know we can't grow food without pollinators like bees and butterflies? It's true! We'll spend our day planting plants for the birds and the bugs, feeding the hummingbirds, growing some of our own food to take home, and learning about how animals help grow some of our food we eat!

Tuesday

Mammals

Learn about our furred friends as kids visit with the mammals of Fragile Planet. Activities include tours, scavenger hunts, crafts, and story books!

 

Thursday

Reptiles / Amphibians

They're crawly - but not as creepy as we thought! Our scaly and not-so-slimy friends teach us about reptiles and amphibians as we visit some of the world's most delicate creatures, touch real snake skins, play frog tongue games, and craft some things of our own.
