 Spotlight on the Up Yonda Butterfly Farm

 On our trip to the Butterfly Farm, I brought a one year old, two year old, five year old and 9 year old.  They all had a blast and learned something!  First we stopped at the pond and found pollywogs, fish and frogs, then we hiked to the Butterfly Tent (see photo).  Yonda Butterfly Farm - Butterfly Tent
 Monarch Butterfly  Butterflies were everywhere, the children loved to imitate them and chase from flower to flower.  There were so many that the children were sure that one would land on them.

The Farm has a museum, a sugar house, where the children learned how maple sugar is made, a constellation dome where a very informed guide taught the children (and myself) about the stars.  This is a wonderful afternoon. Highly recommended.  The farm is located in Bolton Landing, 1/2 hour north of Lake George Village.
