Join us at MSU Tollgate Farm for summer story hour! Novi Public Library will be partnering with us to share their favorite farm-themed stories accompanied by music and movement, process-based art, hands on experiments and investigations, and/or games.
Who has a built-in comb? Who lives in a burrow? Who can sleep standing up? Children will have the opportunity to visit and observe the animals in their farm habitat to seek the answers to their many questions.

June 27 - Down on the Farm

Children over 5 years old who are interested in coming to the farm can attend our summer camp sessions. Please visit www.tollgate.msu.edu for more information.
