Exploration Backpack Program

"Into the Woods"
August through October

Looking for a fun way to nurture your child’s appreciation for the natural world? Check out our self-guided Into the Woods exploration backpack which contains all the essential tools for discovery.

Through a series of stops along a Hildene trail, children will engage in hands-on forest activities. Suggested for ages 5 to 10, the adventure is intended to take between 1- 2 hours. The pack is designed for 1 to 3 children, but more could participate if they are willing to share tools.

Packs may be checked out from The Museum Store with a credit card: $10 members/$15 for nonmembers in addition to admission.
