For Families

Learning and growing in nature is fun for the whole family! From the Our Big Backyard series where adults and children ages 7-11 explore the wonders of nature during every month of the year to our seasonal Polliwogs program designed to introduce children ages 2 1/2 – 5 to nature through hands-on fun with a favorite grown-up, Prescott Farm offers a full array of hands-on experiential programs for all ages. Join us and reconnect to the people and places that matter most to you!
