$75 members, $100 non-members

Both the farm and the forest are filled with many different plants and animals. Some animals that live at Landmark Park come out at night to hunt for food, make repairs to their homes and frolic in the woods. Others are awake in the daytime grazing in the warmth and sunshine and sleep when the stars come out. Spend the week learning the difference between the nocturnal and diurnal animals that call the Park home. We will spend time on the farm with the animals active in the daytime and time in the forest looking for footprints, scat and other signs left behind by those animals only awake when the sun goes down.

NEW! Nature Detectives (entering 2nd & 3rd Grade)

Monday-Wednesday 9am-2pm

Thursday 4pm-Friday 8 am (Spend the night Thursday)

$125 members, $150 non-members

Alabama is one of the most biologically diverse states in the nation. Unfortunately, many of our plants and animals are either threatened or endangered and several are close to possible extinction. Once a plant or animal is extinct it is gone forever. Our Nature Detectives will spend the week exploring why certain plant and animal numbers are decreasing and what role we can play to stop more from disappearing forever.

This great week will be topped off with a cookout and sleepover in tents, as well as a little night exploring to get to know the nocturnal animals that call Landmark Park home. Thursday dinner and Friday breakfast will be provided.

We will learn how to care for the farm animals and find out how important each animal was to the pioneer farmer. We will spend time in the garden and learn how people grew their own vegetables while planting and harvesting. Campers will also learn how to churn butter, make ice cream, wash clothes the old fashioned way, and cook on the hearth.  Summertime on the farm was always a time for fun and adventure!

Our five senses help us enjoy and survive the world we live in.  The animals at Landmark Park also use their senses to survive.  Owls in the forest use their eyes to search for food, but mice use their whiskers because their vision is so poor.  Join us for an exciting week as we compare our five senses to some of the heightened senses belonging to the animals that call Landmark Park home.  We will discover our senses through exploring, crafts, games, and stories.  Discover the animal life and adventure waiting for you at Landmark Park this summer!
