Family Friendly Fridays
July 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
It’s time to get outside and have some fun! Join us every Friday in July beginning on July 1st from 10:00am—12:00pm for a morning of fun, learning and exploration at Sotterley. Each Family Friendly Friday will have a different activity—it’s time to plan a weekly field trip to Sotterley!
Weekly activities are:
July 1st – Bird Walk! Get out in nature with the Southern Maryland Audubon Society and learn about our local feathery friends with experts! Binoculars will be provided for your little ones, so just bring those inquisitive brains.
July 8th – Patuxent Environmental and Aquatic Research Laboratory (PEARL) visits Sotterley to talk about the incredible work Oysters do to clean our waterways with demonstrations.
July 15th – Exhibit scavenger hunt! Learn more about Sotterley’s exhibits and history and find a little bit of treasure at the end.
July 22nd – Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum visits Sotterley with a Colonial Kitchen demonstration.
July 29th – A visit from our friends at Achterberg Acres, a vendor at the Aeropark Farmer’s Markets, to discuss their farm and how they make their Bees Wax Wraps. This is a great opportunity for kids to learn about sustainability, local agriculture, and our favorite pollinators.
$5 per person, 3 and under free. Suggested Ages: 4 and Up!
Sotterley members are FREE! Consider joining our Sotterley family—a $65 Family membership allows you to get into our summer programming for free, and you can also take a tour as often as you like or simply come and enjoy the grounds all year!
