Anton and Little Buddy want to celebrate your birthday with you at Doodleton Ranch.
Activities include an art project, group game and
engaging with the animals. Specific activities depends on the age group.
Available for children of all ages. Cost is $15.00 per child (maximum of 15 children) for a two hour party. You bring the food, we supply the fun.
We do a variety of field trip programs for school classes, scouts, preschools, or other groups. Whether related to animals or our oak woodland habitat, participants engage with the environment through art, science, and physical activities. Our animal classes focus on donkeys and goats. We teach about how animals learn through positive reinforcement and how to care for them. In our oak woodland class the focus is on the flora and fauna in this particular environment. Cost is $15.00 per student (maximum 15 students) for a two hour class.
Come learn about donkeys in our "smart ass" class. This hands-on primer gives you a chance to learn about donkeys and how to handle them. Once everyone is comfortable with their donkey, the group takes a hike on the property, ending with a donkey tea party. Cost is $15.00 per person (ages 13 to adult) for a two hour class. Maximum of 6 participants.
There are plenty of ways to contribute to the ranch. Groups can come out and spend the morning working on the ranch: clearing brush, cleaning stalls, trail maintenance, or working in the garden are just a few examples of what people have done. For individuals, there are opportunities to work with the animals on a regular basis: walking the donkeys, clicker training with Little Buddy, supervising the chickens while they free range and helping with ranch chores. All volunteer work is greatly appreciated.
