Calling all adventurers! Go on a mission through the National Colonial Farm to discover how agriculture, water, and land use over time has affected people and the planet. Journey through a day of exploration and investigation by getting your hands dirty (literally!) and discovering the role you play in the health of soil and water. Your child will embark on a quest gathering clues at each activity station to reveal how they can help improve the world around them.
