Homeschool Days at Blithewold
Last Tuesday of each month
September 26 – May 28
10 AM – 1:30 PM
Location: Education Room in Visitor’s Center and Grounds

Join us on the last Tuesday of each month from September through May for fun (and educational) hands-on learning at Blithewold! This year we will offer programs in Science, History, and Art. Each month, we will begin by collecting data for Cornell University’s Lab of Orthinology (Birds) to help scientists track changes in bird populations across the globe. Indoor and outdoor learning experiences in Science, History, and the Arts complete our curriculum, which aligns with RI, MA, and CT state standards. Between sessions, there is plenty of time to enjoy a nice picnic or run out some energy on the Great Lawn.

Students are to check in at the Visitor Center and 1 adult chaperone is required to remain on the property until pick up. Please pack a lunch, it will be enjoyed from 11:30 to 12:00. Adult chaperones and younger siblings are welcome to picnic on the Grounds with the students.

The programs are designed for Ages 8 – 13
Class size is limited to 15. Reservations are required.
