October Offerings

“The Last Dragon” – Trinity Lutheran School

“Too Many Toys” – Iddings Elementary School

“John, Paul, George and Ben” – Flint Lake Elementary

“Charlotte’s Web” – Immanuel Lutheran School

Don’t forget to vote for your favorite Character – Scarecrow displayed near the Railway Garden Depot/Visitors Center! This year, 11 groups of kids in grades K-5 read a book, built a scarecrow based on the book or a character in the book, and wrote an essay about it. We have a penguin, Samson, a president and a dragon! These groups are amazing!


The Colors are Magic!

The colors of the trees, shrubs and even some perennials are outstanding here at Taltree. Visit us any time for a hike. Come on a Saturday or Sunday during October and get on a hay wagon for a tour of the grounds, take the kids inside the Depot for crafts and story time, and see what we have to offer in the Taltree Store.
