About the event
This trip will begin at 9:30 am at Historic Brattonsville. The cost is $6 per person. Money must be collected ahead to hold our spots.To register visit the event on Facebook.
The primary group for Sheep and Sheers is geared toward preK-2. The older group is for upper elementary to middle school. There is much to see at this location that is not part of the programming, so students will have lots to stay busy while doing the self-guided portion. Both groups should be finished by about 12:30. There are places available to picnic. They are first come, first served, but shouldn't be difficult to find a spot. There is a nice children's museum in the area, so if you wanted to make a day of it, you could head there after lunch.
It's important to remember that the $6 is ONLY entrance to one program so if you have students who are attending both you will have to split or pay extra to stay in both. I plan to let my older do the programming with a friend while I stay with the younger. Also, important to note, the cutoff for this trip is 60 including adults.
There are horses and sheep on the farm, so it should be a fun spring on the farm trip! Look forward to exploring and learning with you all!
