Fantastic Farm Party
This is our most popular birthday offering. This interactive program will allow the children to get up close and personal with many of the animals that call Heckscher Farm home. An SM&NC educator will lead the children from the Chicken Coop to the Cheshire Barn. The kids will be able to feed our chickens, sheep, and goats as they learn all about our farm animals. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes.
Learn about some of nature's wonders while participating in a scavenger hunt through our beautiful grounds, led by an SM&NC educator. We will look for objects from nature based on clues we'll have at a series of stations along our nature walk. When we are finished, we will take our treasures and recycle them for future partygoers to enjoy. This party is for children 5 years old and above. The nature walk lasts approximately 45 minutes.
