Children gain benefits from field trips to farms, study shows
Eddy Ridge Grassland can accommodate small groups such as homeschoolers and scout troops. Activities will vary by season and can be adjusted to satisfy badge or curriculum needs. We can (depending on season and weather) take short grassland nature hikes, study temporary wetlands, analyze grassland production, plant crops, make hay, study older farming tools and methods, weed gardens, harvest crops, and hand feed sheep and chickens. Children must be well supervised by the adults that brought them.
