The Wakefield Estate is proud to participate in this year's "Take A Child Outside Week," September 24-30. The initiative seeks to help children develop a better understanding and appreciation of the environment in which they live, and a burgeoning enthusiasm for its exploration.
During the after school hours from Monday-Thursday, September 27-30 (2:30-5:00 pm), the Wakefield Estate welcomes parents and children to explore the woods, orchard and gardens at the estate. While no formal activities will be scheduled, we hope parents will consider bringing their children out to take a walk in the woods, visit our chickens, look for frogs and crayfish in the pond, or keep your eyes open for evidence of the changing season.
