Science and Nature. All Ages.

Join an in-depth exploration of the Watson Farm working landscape.

Advance registration required. No registrations will be accepted on the day of the program. One adult per family admitted free, additional adults pay full price. Each program is limited to 24 people. These are not drop-off programs - children must be accompanied by an adult. Strollers and backpack carriers are not permitted in the house museums.

New for 2018: We have increased the number of programs and separated them into two age categories, "8+" and "All Ages." Programs listed as "8+" are intended solely for children between the ages of 8 and 14 and are not suitable for younger siblings. Programs listed as "All Ages" include a variety of activities designed to engage and educate younger children as well. Each program description includes the subject area or areas it primarily covers.
