Now that you’ve followed my earlier advice and gotten outside, where to go? If you’re in the Boston area, here are a few good suggestions:
Drumlin Farm, run by the Mass Audubon Society, offers a wealth of nature programs for kids, ranging from a “Walk on the Wild Side” into the surrounding woods to “Animal Yoga” classes to “Woolapalooza” with the farm’s own sheep.
Closer to home, The Somerville Growing Center offers children’s programming including after-school nature classes, morning concerts, and their annual Fairy Night.
Finally, for those who want to give something back while playing outdoors, Waltham Fields Community Farm holds weekly volunteer hours where anyone can come in and plant a row or pull some weeds. They donate a portion of what they grow to feed the hungry around Boston, and the rest goes into a local CSA program.
