Event Overview

This free, all-ages event features guided nature walks, wagon rides, family activities and more! A midday picnic lunch will be served (available while supplies last).

There's something for everyone to enjoy during Open Farm Day. Take in the beauty of the 1,250-acre preserve from your seat on a guided wagon ride, do some bird watching from our docks on Upshur and Phillips Creeks or search for geocaches along the public birding and wildlife trail.
