Winter Homeschool Series Begins January 22

Winter weather impacts the way all of us live – including the plants and animals around us. So it’s an excellent time of year to learn about the natural world around us. Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center welcomes 2020 with a selection of new and popular returning programs geared towards building new experiences and knowledge – whatever the weather has in store.

Among the new additions to Prescott Farm’s calendar is Homeschool: Winter Series­, a 4-week program for homeschool families with children ages 6-12. Participants in the Wednesday afternoon classes will be invited to explore the natural environment and the animals active during New Hampshire winters.

Through hands-on, outdoor lessons guided by Prescott Farm’s knowledgeable Naturalists, children will investigate the theme of each week’s program:

  • Animal Tracking: January 22; 1:30-3 pm
  • Big Mammals: January 29; 1:30-3 pm
  • Birds in Winter: February 5; 1:30-3 pm
  • The Subnivean Zone: February 12; 1:30-3 pm
