Flanders Nature Center is offering a new series for young children on June 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. at Flanders North Barn located on 644 Flanders Road in Woodbury. The theme of this event, “Just Kidding” centers around Nigerian dwarf dairy goats that are new arrivals at the farm.

Kids will have fun being a “farmer” for the day when visiting the Flanders North Barn and learning all about these fabulous creatures. They will learn about products made from goat’s milk, watch a goat milking demonstration and then go on a short hike with the goats as they watch them dine on leaves and plants. There will even be a “Van-goat” art project to take home as part of this learning experience about goats and the responsibilities that comes with life on the farm.

All activities will be based at Flanders North Barn and pre-registration is required. The cost for members of Flanders Nature Center is $5 for the child and caregiver and $10 for non-members. Registration is online at www.flandersnaturecenter.org or by calling the Center at 203-263-3711. For other programs, visit the Center’s website.
