Frogs, bugs and birds: oh my!

Bring your little one to the Queens County Farm Museum’s annual Wildlife Weekend where they can get up close and personal with critters of all sizes.

Admission to the event includes special shows featuring frogs, bugs, birds of prey and other animals; pony rides; hayrides; and animal feeding experiences. Families attending the event can also take the opportunity to stroll around the farm’s 47 acres of land and catch a glimpse of resident livestock and growing fields.

The campus’ historic farmhouse will also be open and free tours will be offered every half hour.

Wildlife Weekend will take place Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 5 and 6 as well as Nov. 12 and 13 and run from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. This weekend’s festivities will also feature the farm’s final organic farmstand of the season — which features food grown on-site — from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Admission is $9 per person for all ages; free for farm members. The Queens County Farm Museum is located at 73-50 Little Neck Parkway in Glen Oaks.
