The day begins at 11:30 a.m. with a healthy lunch prepared on site Much of the fresh produce on the menu is grown in the Courthouse Community Garden. Children participate in two or three special programs each day, including a birds of prey demonstration from the Wildlife Institute of Northeastern New York, dance and movement, needle felting, dog agility, nature walks, rock wall climbing and more. There is something special and unique for each age group.
