Join Up Yonda Farm naturalists for a guided behind-the-scenes tour of the buildings and grounds on the 75-acre site in Bolton Landing. You’ll learn about the history of Up Yonda Farm and the family that donated the property, which is the only Environmental Education Center in Warren County. All the buildings on the property have been converted or expanded to further the mission of educating the public about the environment in the Adirondacks. This tour will include the Farmhouse, which houses the welcome center, a live turtle exhibit and offices; the Auditorium for local history and taxidermy; the Museum’s four exhibits, three of which have been updated or added in 2020/2021; and the Sugarhouse for an overview of Adirondack Maple Sugaring and a history of sugaring at Up Yonda Farm.
Guests are encouraged to pack a lunch and picnic on the lawn or under the pavilion before the tour and enjoy the scenery at Up Yonda Farm. After your tour, you may revisit any stops to explore your interests, take a nature walk on the available trails, summit the vista for incredible views of Lake George and the surrounding mountains or find a quiet spot in one of the gardens to enjoy the peace of nature.
Please note: Participants should dress for the weather and wear proper footwear and clothing for this indoor and outdoor program, which will include walking a half-mile to three-quarters of a mile on paved and unpaved surfaces.
