Children Read and Explore at Terhune Orchards

This Winter and Spring with Educational Programs


Read & Explore, our winter educational series includes fun and informative programs to get young minds thinking about nature and the world around them. This popular reading program is a cure for cabin fever. Children (ages preschool – 8 years) gather around a storyteller to listen to a book being read inside our big, heated greenhouse.


After story time the children participate in educational activities and make a craft to take home. That may include decorating a big gingerbread cookie, building a bird feeder, creating a compost container or planting seeds in the greenhouse. Full descriptions of Read & Explore classes are on the calendar at


Read & Explore are held on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. Each session lasts about an hour. The cost is $7 per child and includes the craft activity.  Children must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is requested. Please call (609) 924-2310 to register.
