Kids journaling while looking at cattle

Collaboration with The Art Base 

As a naturalist with an eye for design, spend your days meeting farm animals, looking for wildlife, and meandering forests, wetlands, gardens, pastures, ponds and flower gardens. Capture and record your discoveries in a hand-made field journal, all while sharpening your drawing skills with published illustrator, Hilary Forsyth. Create an original acrylic painting and papier-mâché sculpture of your favorite animal, as well as other one-of-a-kind art projects in this collaborative workshop with the Art Base.

What To Bring:

Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!

How To Get There:

Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Rock Bottom Ranch whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.

BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to the Ranch in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more.
PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Rock Bottom Ranch visitors only. Please park efficiently. No parking in ACES lots during closed hours. We are an IDLE FREE organization.
