Even cuter than animals — baby animals!

Take a wagon ride

Ever want to check out the back forty? Hop on the tractor drawn wagon and get a behind-the-scenes look, and explore a variety of farm demonstrations. Find out how managing a 93-acre property is a labor of love and food on the dinner table is really a gift. (Open Barn days)

visit the winter flower bulbs

After the first frost or snow storm, you might assume that your bulb-planting days are over. But as long as the ground is workable, you can plant bulbs! Visit the grounds and see what went from ‘under to over,’ from below soil to basking in the Spring sunshine.


Pick-a-Petunia basket (great for Mother’s Day!)

As a part of their Horticulture unit and yearly fundraiser, Bowers Academy students work incredibly hard to plant and manage these baskets. From strategically choosing the types of flowers, soil, fertilizer, irrigation methods, and creating a marketing plan for sales - purchasing a basket means a lot to these students! The money raised goes towards supporting their leadership activities and hands-on field trips.
