Spring Field Trips

This Spring, we had the pleasure of hosting field trips for local schools, during which we celebrated our Earth Day theme. Students learned about the ways which we can conserve our natural resources, and the importance of conservation to people who lived during the 19th century. They also learned some of the games played by pioneer children, as well as the history of the house and grounds.
