Nature Explorers at Fire Ring Farm in Portland

Our Farm and Forest program is held during the daytime thought the school year at Fire Ring Farm in Portland, CT. In this program, we spend time exploring beautiful and ever-changing Palmer-Taylor Preserve, owned and managed by the Middlesex Land Trust while we learn about foraging, fort building, map reading, nature awareness through child-led exploration and play. We also help the farmers at Fire Ring Farm with seasonal farm activities such as planting, harvesting, gathering maple sap and tending the chickens. See individual sessions below for age recommendations and program dates.

CDC guidance for gatherings in outdoor spaces will be followed.
