We are very excited to introduce the newest addition to our line-up of educational tours: The Pollinator Tour! This tour is a combination of our former Butterfly and Honeybee tours, with a few new things thrown in. Students will learn about the importance of pollinating insects, and their impact on everyday life. Come hear the buzz about honeybees, see the beauty of butterflies, and understand their importance to our survival. Learn the parts of a bee and check out our hive equipment to discover how honey is produced. Students will also learn about the Monarch Butterfly and its epic annual 2,500 mile migration to Mexico. See if your students can identify the parts of a flower, and send them into our demo garden to see if they can find any pollination occurring. This tour is for students 6 years and older.
The Pollinator Field Trip (June-mid-Sept) is $9 per person, and includes:
- Butterfly life-cycle and fun facts
- Honeybee discovery and fun facts
- Flower anatomy
- Greenhouse tour and planting
- Wagon ride tour of the farm
- 2 ounce jar of honey to take home
- Gross motor work-out in our farm play area after your tour
Don’t forget to exercise in our 5-acre play area! Our 2800 sq ft Pumpkin Jumpin’ Pillow, Double Barrel 80-foot slides, pedal cart track, and rope swings will make your heart race! You can become a Maze Master by challenging each of our 4 mazes. See who can climb up the Rubber Ridge tractor tire mountain the fastest, or go for a romp in our Corn Bin.
With each of our school trips, one bus driver and one teacher receive complimentary admission for every 15 students, with a minimum of 15 students.
