Nature Field trips
Fairhill school children visit the historic park and their own school gardens. On Family Saturdays, children can pick up an Explorer Backpack with plant ID cards, magnifying glass, crayons, coloring sheets, and scavenger hunts. Visitors can learn about the 30 species of trees with their own trunks, bark, leaves, fruits, flowers seeds,. They look for the bugs, worms, birds, squirrels, red tailed hawks that call the park their home. Contact us today to schedule your field trip!
The historic park is an oasis of peace and calm in a busy city. Neighbors have had walking clubs, yoga classes, meditation sessions and the gardeners offer medicinal herbs for soothing teas at the weekly farm stand. We welcome requests or offers to teach classes.
