Spend a day at Rushton exploring the woods and fields, monitoring bird boxes, and making bouquets, forest art, and gnome homes. We’ll also work on the farm, harvesting the potatoes you helped plant in May. In addition, we will be discovering the power of Motus technology for tracking the movements and migrations of birds through a case study of a nano-tagged bird. Snacks will be provided, but campers should bring their own lunch.
Join a professional beekeeper to meet Rushton’s busy honey bee colony. Children will have the opportunity to extract and taste honey straight off the honeycomb and learn about the importance of honey bees and other native bees.
This program is exclusively for our Rushton Nature Keepers members. To sign up your child for Rushton Nature Keepers, click here. Or contact Blake Goll for more information at email@example.com.
Final pickup for CSA members. Watch the Wild Carrot for details.
Get your hands dirty and help the farm staff plant potatoes! Since this farm is regenerative it complements the surrounding ecosystem by providing habitat for myriad living things besides the crops. We’ll come across many interesting insects and birds while working in the field and learn about how this farm functions within the surrounding landscape.
