Today we headed over to a place called Bakerwoods Farm. It has just about everything that we look for in a worth while educational field trip. Imagination, nature, science, history, animals, nature trails, a picnic area and the kids favorite part: the “Gnome I Spy Nature Trail”l!
We first set out to see all the animals as many of them came to greet us upon our arrival!
I think “peggy the goose” was one of the first animals we met, who we learned has quite a little history to her life so far.
The we headed out to the “I Spy Gnome Trail”. The first thing is to get your paper with the items to “spy” while on the trail. We spotted everything on the list except for three things while on our walk…maybe next time we’ll get them all?!
Then we took a lunch break and finished up with another nature walk through the Ancient Path Trail. We used our imaginations and made up some short stories and ideas about the facial expressions we saw in the trees!
For me, I appreciated the entire experience and feel very grateful for the hard-working people who run places like this for others to enjoy- very welcoming and fortunate to have people like that in this world!
There is no fee, they accept donations.
We “spied” many other nature items throughout the day as well. If you can take a trip, I urge you to take advantage of this peaceful, relaxing, educational and fun atmosphere it’s very unique and you’ll spy many other things I have not mentioned as well!!
