Earle’s Great Hunt

For our smaller guests, we have a special tour of the estate. With the help of the Hills & Dales Estate mascot, Earle the Fox Squirrel, children partake on a fun-filled journey through the Estate while they learn about the plants, animals, and history that make Hills & Dales Estate so special. At no charge, children receive the Hills & Dales Activity Book, a ten page booklet designed for children between Kindergarten and 6th grade. Students who tour the estate and successfully complete “Earle’s Great Hunt” on page nine of the activity book will receive a special prize at the Visitor Center.
