Our preschool exuberantly gives Doodleton a 5-star rating for a hands-on approach to learning. We groomed donkeys, petted goats, learned about owls; the kids still use diurnal and nocturnal in their vocabulary and have a new found love learning about animals. We concluded by going on a fact-finding scavenger hunt that elevated their day then ended having lunch in the beautiful clubhouse. We have returned each year as this is by far our favorite field trip." Nancy K., El Cerrito, Ca
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.
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.
