Starry Night on the Farm combines adventure and learning for a fun family overnight. What better way to celebrate the summer solstice than to join us at MSU Tollgate Farm and Education Center for an exciting outdoor overnight learning experience? This family-oriented visit will give you a rare glimpse into what goes on after sundown on the farm. Arrive Friday evening after dinner to enjoy an evening wagon ride and hike, investigate the nighttime woods, and visit our animal friends. Explore the science of the summer solstice and the night sky with the Oakland Astronomy Club. Enjoy astronomy investigations, solar system games on the hill, and s’mores around the campfire before settling down for the night. Depending on weather, we’ll camp outdoors or in the historic 1860s barn before waking to a farm fresh breakfast and morning animal chores. Leave with warm memories and new friends. 
Who knew learning could be this much fun?
