World of Wonder Open House: Celebrating 20 Years of the Farmscape Ecology Program

Saturday, August 26, 2023 - 10:00 to 16:00

Join us for a very special open house at the Creekhouse celebrating the Farmscape Ecology Program's 20th anniversary. This free event will feature a variety of WONDER STATIONS highlighting new ways to experience and appreciate the wonders of the natural world through different senses and perspectives:

  • SOUND WONDERS - the wonderful world of singing insects
  • SMALL WONDERS - microscopic wonders of plants and insects 
  • HIDDEN WONDERS - the wonders inside; skulls, owl pellets, and more
  • WEATHER WONDERS - historical weather station, seasonal signs, and more
  • SUITCASE OF WONDERS - animated 3D map of Columbia County, NY

This will also be the last opportunity of the season to visit the Butterfly House, which will be stocked with butterflies from surrounding fields, while the Native Plant Garden will showcase the late season flowers and plants in different garden habitats. Finally, there will be a new butterfly-themed StoryWalk for children; the third and last of the year.

Rain Date: Sunday, August 27
