Pelts, Skulls and More! - March 11

You don’t need to find an animal in the wild to learn all about it! From 10AM until 11:30AM we will explore pelts and skulls from all kinds of mammals and birds that can be found in Pennsylvania, and learn some fun animal facts along the way. Stick around for some hands-on activities when we are finished exploring!

Easter Scavenger Hunt - April 1

This hunt for eggs is not your traditional egg hunt! Each child is given a clue card that will lead them around Jim Dietrich Park, near the farmhouse, to various stations where they will need to play a carnival type game to get eggs filled with candy and toy surprises. Each child can be creative by making a simple craft inside the farmhouse. Be sure to bring a basket for your eggs and a camera for a picture with the Easter Bunny.  The hunt will begin immediately after you register between the hours of 10 and 11:30AM on Saturday, April 1st. This is a self-paced egg hunt geared toward children 2 to 10 years of age. 
Free to children that reside or attend school in Muhlenberg Township. This event will be held at the Recreation Building, 3025 River Road, if there is inclement weather.
