Feeling adventurous and ready to trek into the woods? Prescott Farm has got you covered. More interested in a cozy conversation about gardening plans for spring? Prescott Farm’s the place for that, too. In fact, Prescott Farm in Laconia offers a wide array of public programs this winter that will suit winter warriors, inquisitive nature-lovers, gardeners, and everyone in between.

Snowshoe Programs

For those looking to truly embrace winter’s wonders, there are several snowshoe programs on tap. If you are ready to balance a snowshoe walk with sun salutations and downward facing dogs, there’s Snowshoe Yoga. This inaugural series will be taught by guest instructor, Kate Kretschmer, and runs three Saturdays, Jan. 26, Feb. 16 & Mar. 23, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. More attune to an evening of star gazing? Prescott Farm’s naturalist will share knowledge of the night sky and nocturnal critters during the Moonlit Snowshoe Walk on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 6 – 7:30 p.m.

Family Programs

For many years, Our Big Backyard has been a popular series for seven – 11 year olds and their favorite grownups. Kids who are ready to explore the natural wonders of our ecosystem will love the new-for-2019 program Let’s Go “Owling!” On Friday, Feb. 15th, 6 to 7:30 p.m. a naturalist will lead an educational adventure about these nocturnal birds during their mating season.

Gardening Programs

For those already dreaming of warmer spring days and digging into another year of gardening, the Intro to Organic Gardening Program is a great option.
