Thacher Park, NY - A Homeschool Field Trip

If I can keep this up I will need to designate Fridays for Field Trip Posts.  Field Trip Fridays.  I like the sound of that. ;)

Sometimes our days are not going as planned and we need to hit the refresh button.  Some days field trips are planned and on other days when we just need to hit the refresh button we escape to Thacher Park.  John Boyd Thacher State Park is a beautiful park along the Helderberg Escarpment, and just recently they built a beautiful new visitor center.

We took to the visitor center, explored their model cave, learned about the history of the park, and did a little nature journaling.  And there is much more to do, so each time we can do something a little different, hike, play at the park, zip along the zip-line.  So happy to have this park so close to us.
