Have you ever heard a pig snore? Have you ever watched a goat sleep? Our Good Night Barn class lets kids experience the farm at the end of the day. We will turn the lights off as we finish caring for Critter Barn’s animals. As the sun goes down, we use flashlights to focus and see where to go. It's a one-of-a-kind-class! It’s fun to walk through the barn and see the animals settle down for the night... shhhhh!

Bee Lovers Of All Ages!

One-time class

There’s something new at the Critter Barn this year! Meet two professional beekeepers: Phillip Preston and Don Lam. Learn about the amazing honey bee! Without bees, there would be very little food for anyone to eat!

 

You will learn about beekeeping in all seasons plus the special equipment used to safely manage and handle hives. Try on a beekeeping suit! Learn how the worker bees truly do all the work. See beehive boxes, and learn about honey.  Students will receive a copy of the informative booklet: Welcome to our Honey Farm.

 

*NOTE*

Classes will have no live residents in the hives (no bees!)
