Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust is excited to announce that we will be holding our second Flanders Festival - A Celebration of Art, Farming and Nature! It is scheduled for Saturday, May 22, from 11 AM to 4 PM (rain date May 23rd) on the beautiful grounds of our main campus, the Van Vleck Farm & Nature Sanctuary located at 5 Church Hill Road in Woodbury.
The North Barn will be open and visitors will be able to interact with the bunnies, chicks, piglets, miniature ponies, goats and sheep who make their home there including all the newest spring arrivals. Local author and Flanders’ Environmental Education Coordinator and Farm Manager, Dianne Parmelee, will present a book reading of her new book: Booker Smile, Booker Style at 1PM in the barnyard!
Visitors can hop on a tractor for a wagon ride, go on a nature walk, touch a collection of vintage tractors, participate in fun children's activities, and buy unique items from local artisans.
