Earle’s Great Hunt
Be sure to ask about complimentary home and garden scavenger hunts for children! Young guests are invited to enjoy a special tour of the estate. With the help of Hills & Dales Estate mascot, Earle the Fox Squirrel, children will enjoy a fun-filled journey while they learn about the plants, animals and history that make the estate so special. At no charge, children receive the Hills & Dales Activity Book, a booklet designed for children ages Kindergarten through sixth grade. Those who successfully complete “Earle’s Great Hunt” on page nine of the activity book, or the home or garden scavenger hunt, will receive a special prize at the Visitor Center.
