Best for ages 5 & up
How the Animal World provides us with "gifts," and how we harvest those
gifts without hurting the animals we care for. Activities may include:
milk a goat, shear a sheep, feel the down on a duck, learn how to
hypnotize a goose for down-gathering, pluck a molting Angora bunny,
balance a peacock feather, and (in season) put baby birds down for a nap!
Length: 45 minutes for each group of 20 or fewer children and adults.
Cost without Donkey: $7/person; one teacher per group free; adults who have done this program before are free;
$350 minimum (you may be able to be piggy-backed before or after another group for a smaller minimum).
Or $400/3-4 hours
for as many participants as we can accomodate in a quicker version
requiring a great deal of active participation from you and your staff.
$1/mile travelling fee. Pay for any two programs listed under ANIMALS
and/or MELACHOT and get $2/person off the second program (you do not
have to do both programs the same day.)
