Activities include family crafts and a story corner inside the Discover Room, a scavenger hunt and, of course, the chance to meet some live turkeys and find out for yourself why Benjamin Franklin thought them worthy of being named our national bird.

Bring your camera for great fall and Thanksgiving photos with the turkeys in our photo corner by the main barn.
