It's 'Farm Kids' time at Watson Farm.

Farm Kids is a six-week outdoor after school program that starts Friday, April 25. It offers children in grades 5 and 6 the opportunity to explore and experience the various habitats that make up the 265-acre Watson Farm.

Woodland, wetlands, shoreline, farm fields and barnyard are all parts of this working historic farm. "Farm Kids" will get a chance to see life on the farm through the change of seasons, and at the same time develop nature observation skills.

The program is on Fridays from 3 to 5:30 p.m., starting April 25 and running May 2, 9, 16, and 30. Registration fee is $40 for members of Historic New England and $60 for non-members. Pre-registration is required and space is limited. For more information, contact Heather Minto at 423-0005.
