Strolling Stories Along Deer Creek

Storytime and nature hikes unite in this program at Chatfield Farms. Each week we venture out around the grounds of Chatfield Farms and investigate nature as it changes with the seasons. Along the trail we stop to read a seasonally themed story and then continue our adventure with an exploration based on the day's book.


Weekly Exploration Themes:

  • October 13: Seeds
  • October 20: Leaves
  • October 27: Busy Animals
  • November 3: Autumn Adventures
  • November 10: Let's Go on a Hike
  • November 17: Hibernation
