Natural Art Hike

Please join us for a fun and inspiring afternoon of making earth sculptures and fairy houses along the Coburn Trail! During the program, we’ll meet at the Morrill Homestead to look at the work of other environmental artists before walking to Coburn Farm, where we’ll explore and make our own natural object artworks. We’ll also pause at the scenic overlook for a sit-down craft and a snack. There is a $3 suggested donation to cover the snack and craft supplies.

The program is for children in elementary school, but parents and caretakers are welcome to attend!

This event is brought to you in partnership with the Upper Valley Land Trust,  www.uvlt.org.
