 Bring the kids to Weir Farm to during visitor center hours to earn their Junior Ranger badges. Badges are earned by completing one of several different activities.  For example, the Art Ranger Letterboxing Program features guided clues that the children follow in order to find stamps hidden in five different letterboxes hidden around the site.  The Art Ranger Pond Pack is a backpack with “art and nature-oriented activities to complete on a hike around Weir Pond.”  For more information, click here.
