Sharp’s at Waterford Farm 2015 Open House Dates

News, Press Releases March 23, 2015

The following dates and times are when we invite individuals to join us for our outdoor educational program. You DO NOT need to be part of a group; just call or e-mail us to register. The great part of our Open House dates is that children only pay…the adults are free.

Ponds, Puddles, & Creeks Your guide will bring you by hayride to the Cattail Creek. Make sure you wear old tennis shoes or water shoes as we go into the creek to catch a variety of the critters that live there. After catching them, we take time to identify what we have found, and learn about their habitats and life cycles. After releasing the critters we head back to the barnyard to feed the farm animals! $7.50/child REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED: CALL (410)489-2572 OR E-MAIL US AT farmquestions@sharpfarm.com
