The spring equinox is the day when the day and night are the same length – a perfect time to celebrate all things spring. We’ll start off learning about spring and seed growth, then plan our own seeds in decorated flower pots to bring some spring home with us. Then we’ll get outside together to explore the Castle Hill gardens and look for signs of spring before wrapping up with a snack.
The Amesbury Carriage Museum will present its first-ever Family Day in the Millyard on Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The program is free and open to all – although donations to the museum are welcome!

The Notch Mobile Biergarten will be visiting Project Adventure on Moraine Farm in Beverly.

Enjoy a day outside with friends, family, good food, and great beer. Dogs are welcome and there is on-site parking available.
Brave the dark of the night in the Dunes of the Crane Wildlife Refuge! We start with an introduction to night sounds, so you are prepared to identify the sounds you will hear, then we hike silently through the darkness, letting our ears make up for our lack of sight. What will you hear? Frogs? Owls? Foxes? Who knows! Debrief and relax with a drink around the campfire to wrap up the evening’s adventure.
