hayride creek










Friday, – July 28 – Ponds, Puddles & Creeks – If you or your children have never walked through a creek on a hot summer day you may want to take this opportunity to join us. It is an experience that will bring you closer to nature & give you a wonderful sense of calmness! 

Your guide will bring you down by hayride to the Cattail Creek. Make sure to wear old tennis shoes or water shoes as we go into the creek to catch a variety of critters that live there. (Please no flip flops as the often end up floating downstream!) After spending some time catching the critters, we will take time to identify what we have found and learn about their habitats and life cycles. After releasing the critters back to the creek we head back to the barnyard to feed the farm animals.  Tour time: 10:30 A.M. – Noon   Cost: $8.00/child Adults attending with children are free. Registration is required on or before July 27th.  Call (410) 489-2572 or complete online registration
