This March the Stamford Museum and Nature Center is offering some programs to chase away the winter blues.
If you like fresh winter produce, then don’t miss the Winter’s Farmers Market taking place here every Sunday through March 31 from 10 am through 2 pm. and the entrance to the market is free. The Heckscher Farm tent will have all of your favorite maple syrup, SM&NC’s Heckscher Farm blend coffee, Arethusa products, and more. For a list of vendors click here.
On March 7 from 10 am to 2 pm there will be a Maple Sugar Fest! Join the staff and watch them make maple syrup from the 200 maple trees found right on the 118-acre property. There will be maple syrup treats, games, and demonstrations. Nonmembers are $20 per person and members are $10 per person.
On March 26, 27, and 28 there will be a Forest Easter Egg adventure on the Wheels in the Woods Trail. A maximum of 25 kids per session ensures a fun, safe event for all. Participants can check-in anytime within the first half-hour of their registered session. We’ll start the hunt on our trails where kids can gather eggs in the woods, then return back to the Wheels in the Woods picnic area, where we’ll get to meet some live animals!
Kids will turn in their found eggs and get to take home a craft and choose a prize from our awesome choices of stuffed animals, science kits, craft activities, and more! The program will run rain or shine (the rain plan will be e-mailed to participants if needed). Members: $20 per child; 1 free adult and Non-members: $25 per child; 1 free adult.
