Martha's Vineyard Kids Activities
Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary & Day Camp Nature Preserve
The Vineyard's conservation areas are a good way to get acquainted with local flora and fauna. The 350-acre Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, a Massachusetts Audubon Society preserve 3 mi. out of Edgartown toward Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven, has 6 mi of hiking trails traversing marshland, fields, oak woods, seashore, and waterfowl and reptile ponds. Nesting ospreys and barn owls also call the sanctuary home. A full schedule of events unfolds throughout the year, including sunset hikes along the beach, explorations of the salt marsh, stargazing, snake or bird walks, snorkeling, canoeing, and more, all led by trained naturalists. An exhibit center has trail maps, aquariums, snake cages, and a gift shop. A bit of summer fun and learning experience combined, the sanctuary's Fern & Feather Day Camp is a great way for children to learn about wildlife, plants, and the stars. It runs one-week or two-week summer sessions that include overnight camping expeditions. Early registration is advised and begins in February. OPEN: Center June-Sept., daily 8-4; Oct.-May, Tues.-Sun. 9-4. Trails daily sunrise-7 PM.
The Farm Institute & Summer Camp
Address: Post Office Box 1868 - Edgartown, Massachusetts 02539
A wonderful place! The Farm Institute was established in 2000 with the objective of reconnecting children and the community with the culture of agriculture. It is a teaching farm that educates and engages children and adults in sustainable agriculture through the operations of a diverse working farm. It serves as a steward of the rich traditions of Vineyard farming and strives to become a place at the center of the community where children, families and generations can once again be engaged with the land. Our mission in our educational programs at the FARM Institute is to relate the children of the island to the importance of local and sustainable agriculture.
