Field Trip to Noah's Landing on Nov 20

A retropost - just for fun!  We went on another really fun field trip with our FIAR group!  This was to Noah's Landing.  We did this in Nov - just before the holidays - and I'm just getting around to sharing it.  I've had the pictures loaded, just late getting to finishing it.

We had to postpone our trip due to weather and we ended up with a beautiful day.  When we arrived, we were divided into 3 groups.  This site is run by a mom and her 2 grown daughters - one is a vet and the other does educational outreach. 

Our group included my 4 youngest children.  We were treated to see so many different kinds of animals!!!  I couldn't begin to name them all.  We learned about each animal and were able to ask questions.  We were also allowed to touch many of them as well.  We saw lemurs, an armidillo, wolves, a skunk, a porcupine, raccoons, birds, snakes, zebra, llama and so much more!  I highly recommend this place for a visit if you live in NC or are travelling in the area!

Here are some photos from our day!


Eliana really loves animals - even the (to me) yucky ones!

I thought this little guy was cute!  (Hedgehog)

I think that feeding the animals was the highlight of the day!  The children fed carrots to a zebra, horses, donkeys and llamas. 

What a blessing to learn more about God's creation in such an up-close and interesting way!  I love field trips!
