January is the perfect time for new outdoor adventures and a refreshed sense of learning and discovery of our natural world. Need some inspiration to get started?
Thanks to the PreK to Grade 2 students at Weston Elementary School in Manville, New Jersey for sending along words to describe their visions of a winter experience at Duke Farms:
- Peaceful and calm
- Green… but also snowy
- Cold and “brrrr” - so be active!
- Glistening, glimmering, and bright
- And most importantly - happy.
If you are still making the decision to go outside to explore, the winter world awaits your curiosity.
