Let's Grow! Exploration Day


Join Hanford Mills as we explore pollinators, native ecosystems, and the history of agriculture! Hanford Mills Museum staff will offer demonstrations of our steel attrition grist mill throughout the day, in addition to our usual machine demonstrations. The Learning Lab will be open with many activities and historic games for children and the whole family to participate in. Kids will also have the opportunity to plant a marigold seed to take home and help our pollinator friends. Other organizations will join us at the museum to share information about gardening, invasive species, bees and pollination, and the New York Power Authority’s hydroelectric plant. Beverages and sweet treats will be available for sale from vendors. Visitors are also welcome to bring your lunch and snacks and enjoy them at our picnic tables.
