Cedar Creek Ranch

The ranch is a fun place to visit in winter! There is plenty of snow for snowshoeing, and lots of animal tracks to follow through the woods and along the creek. Winter is also a great time to warm up by a campfire. Our animal friends spend more time indoors during winter, which means more time to snuggle with Dennis the Cat and the goats. The hens we hatched last spring are finally laying eggs, and we are collecting a dozen eggs every day! The eggs are served at our weekly Friday pancake breakfast in La Crosse.

In STEM we are learning all about the human body. The Adventurers are dissecting owl pellets to learn more about bones and their skeleton. Our older students have been using microscopes to examine cells and tissues, and they will soon move on to dissection labs to learn more about our major organs. We will cover six of the major organ systems during this unit: the skeletal, muscular, digestive, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems. 

Families are invited to join us at the ranch for our annual Winter Festival, which will be held on Friday, March 3 from 11am - 3pm.  The day will include:  lunch, hot coco, snowshoeing, sleigh rides, outdoor winter activities and more. We hope you can join us!
