Our nature-based activities will include singing seasonal songs, listening to animal stories and puppet plays, collecting leaves, gathering acorns for our piggy friends, and sharing a pot of “stone soup”. Grey squirrel will join our farm animals in leading our outdoor adventures as we experience the autumn splendor of color on the farm and watch the animal kingdom prepare for the winter months ahead.
