Eugene Auer Memorial Elementary School had a field trip to the Cornell Cooperative Extension's "Yaphank Farm" in February, 2015. The farm has exploded since I knew it as a child in the '70s, with even more animals and education than I remember when I was eight years old. "Auer" was pretty happy to be there, considering they had hands-on learning experiences in front of them. And the staff at the farm addressed each group very professionally – but with quick wit and kid-friendly fun – enough to make the kids "oooo" and "ahhhh." If you're looking for a field trip, this is the place to go.
