Summer Learning Programs
Our world is in the midst of an ecological crisis.
that as many as 150 species of life go extinct every day, mostly
because of human activity. And it's not just animals in faraway
rainforests that face extinction - livestock breeds that have been
cultivated for centuries are vanishing at an alarming rate.
Now more than ever, people are becoming aware of the threats to
our environment. But the most important aspect of any conservation
effort is education. Future generations need to learn about the
importance of our environment and the inherent value of the plants
and animals that surround us and depend on us. Being exposed at
a young age is particularly important: children that
have positive experiences with animals and nature early in life
will be more likely to grow up to be conscientious participants
in our global ecosystem.
Dalby Farm's summer programs are interactive learning experiences
that expose youngsters to animals, plants and the importance of
nature in a safe, positive way. With daily themes specially tailored
for each age group, our participants learn through presentations,
crafts and games about the critical role that our environment plays
and its effect on living things within it. Outdoor, hands-on activities
let kids interact with our animals and provides them with the opportunity
to take advantage of all the resources of a real farm.
