Do two days of great activities about farming, food, and the environment, plus field trips to ECHO and the Flynn sound just like your child? Sign up them for the Annual Children’s Conference at the University of Vermont campus! The Davis Center’s Livak Ballroom will come alive with stories, singalongs, art projects, guided movement, lunchtime parades, feathery friends and bike-powered blenders. Kids will join their parents for lunch, then move off campus for a field trip each afternoon.
The Saturday field trip to ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center will educate and delight about the Ecology, Culture, History, and Opportunity for stewardship in the Lake Champlain Basin and beyond. Kids are active learners at ECHO as they explore more than 70 live species of animals and more than 100 interactive exhibits.
On the Sunday field trip to the Flynn Center for Performing Arts, a professional teaching artist will engage kids in an afternoon of creative capers that bring local food systems to life. This special outing is designed to dynamically deepen your child’s connections with science, eco systems, life cycles of plants and more.
