    Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation
    January 21, 2018 - 2:00 pm

    The Pratt Nature Center in collaboration with New Milford Hospital’s Plow to Plate Program will be hosting a monthly “Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation for families and individuals.” Each month we will be asking a different professional to be our special guest and join us in our outdoor “adventure” around the the lower fields of the Pratt Center. “Special Guests” will come from an array of different professions such as Fitness, Medical, Mental Health, Education, Substance Abuse, Nutrition, Farming, Veterinary and Political.

    We will introduce the Special Guest and they may give a quick introduction about themselves and their profession. We will then take a walk through the Pratt Property. Participants may ask questions as they meander together on the trails.

    The program will run from 2-3 pm every third Sunday.

    Love Thy Nature Documentary
    January 31, 2018 - 6:30 pm

    The NYC Movie Guru
    Documentary Round-Up – LOVE THY NATURE
    “An enlightening and powerful ode to the vital symbiosis of man and nature. It’s one of the most powerful and inspiring documentaries since An Inconvenient Truth”

    The Pratt Center at NMPL

    Wednesday, January 31st 6:30 PM

    Join the Pratt Center and New Milford Public Library as we screen the documentary, Love Thy Nature, a film by Syvie Rokab and narrated by Liam Neeson. Love Thy Nature points to how deeply we’ve lost touch with nature and takes viewers on a cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. The film shows that a renewed connection with nature is the key to both our health and the health of the planet. Discussion to follow.

    Maple Sugaring Field Trips
    February 15, 2018 - 11:00 am

    Teachers!!!
    Maple Sugaring:
    A collaborative field trip between the Pratt Nature Center and Great Brook Sugar House at Sullivan Farm.

    Program Length: Two Hours

    Program Description: Smell the Sugar. See the Steam. Students will gather around a campfire and listen to Native American and Colonial folklore and legend as they learn how we turn maple sap into the sweet treat we ALL love!
    We will travel through time to a Civil War Era flat pan before heading off into the sugar bush to tap a few maple trees.
    Students will use an auger and collect a bucket or two of sap. They will also see a demo of modern day tubing that is used to gather sap more efficiently. We will then get back on your bus and travel to Great Brook Sugar House to see a modern day Sugar House and evaporator. The field trip wouldn’t be complete without a quick taste of 100 % pure Maple Syrup!

    We can accommodate morning and afternoon classes.
    The cost is $200.00 per time slot. Approx. 50 students

    Mid-February through March.

    All Ages

    Completely OUTSIDE! Dress Appropriate to Weather.

We believe that children, from a very young age, should have a place to play, learn, and find peace in the outdoors. Nature is our greatest teacher, from which we can learn how to ask questions, how things fit together, and what value each living thing has. We will walk through the mud puddles, over or under the logs, and around the spider webs! We will play games, create art, sing songs, and tell stories!

    Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation
    February 18, 2018 - 2:00 pm

    The Pratt Nature Center in collaboration with New Milford Hospital’s Plow to Plate Program will be hosting a monthly “Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation for families and individuals.” Each month we will be asking a different professional to be our special guest and join us in our outdoor “adventure” around the the lower fields of the Pratt Center. “Special Guests” will come from an array of different professions such as Fitness, Medical, Mental Health, Education, Substance Abuse, Nutrition, Farming, Veterinary and Political.

    We will introduce the Special Guest and they may give a quick introduction about themselves and their profession. We will then take a walk through the Pratt Property. Participants may ask questions as they meander together on the trails.

    The program will run from 2-3 pm every third Sunday.

    Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation
    March 18, 2018 - 2:00 pm

    The Pratt Nature Center in collaboration with New Milford Hospital’s Plow to Plate Program will be hosting a monthly “Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation for families and individuals.” Each month we will be asking a different professional to be our special guest and join us in our outdoor “adventure” around the the lower fields of the Pratt Center. “Special Guests” will come from an array of different professions such as Fitness, Medical, Mental Health, Education, Substance Abuse, Nutrition, Farming, Veterinary and Political.

    We will introduce the Special Guest and they may give a quick introduction about themselves and their profession. We will then take a walk through the Pratt Property. Participants may ask questions as they meander together on the trails.

    The program will run from 2-3 pm every third Sunday.

We believe that children, from a very young age, should have a place to play, learn, and find peace in the outdoors. Nature is our greatest teacher, from which we can learn how to ask questions, how things fit together, and what value each living thing has. We will walk through the mud puddles, over or under the logs, and around the spider webs! We will play games, create art, sing songs, and tell stories!

    Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation
    May 20, 2018 - 2:00 pm

    The Pratt Nature Center in collaboration with New Milford Hospital’s Plow to Plate Program will be hosting a monthly “Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation for families and individuals.” Each month we will be asking a different professional to be our special guest and join us in our outdoor “adventure” around the the lower fields of the Pratt Center. “Special Guests” will come from an array of different professions such as Fitness, Medical, Mental Health, Education, Substance Abuse, Nutrition, Farming, Veterinary and Political.

    We will introduce the Special Guest and they may give a quick introduction about themselves and their profession. We will then take a walk through the Pratt Property. Participants may ask questions as they meander together on the trails.

    The program will run from 2-3 pm every third Sunday.
    Contact Pratt at 860.355.3137

    Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation
    June 17, 2018 - 2:00 pm

    The Pratt Nature Center in collaboration with New Milford Hospital’s Plow to Plate Program will be hosting a monthly “Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation for families and individuals.” Each month we will be asking a different professional to be our special guest and join us in our outdoor “adventure” around the the lower fields of the Pratt Center. “Special Guests” will come from an array of different professions such as Fitness, Medical, Mental Health, Education, Substance Abuse, Nutrition, Farming, Veterinary and Political.

    We will introduce the Special Guest and they may give a quick introduction about themselves and their profession. We will then take a walk through the Pratt Property. Participants may ask questions as they meander together on the trails.

    The program will run from 2-3 pm every third Sunday.
