Programs and Events
In keeping with our mission, The Fells offers engaging programs in history, horticulture, and ecology for all interests and ages. You can learn about planting your garden; John Milton’s Hay’s political influence during times of crisis; or about the vernal pools and wildlife at The Fells. We have a year-long calendar of classes, celebrations, and functions—from guest authors and presenters to preschool and afterschool programs to family festivals to exciting gala events. You can also enjoy summer music performances, privately hosted dinners, and holiday themed tours.

A note about payment for programs and events.
We ask that payment be made in advance for all programs and events. If the class or event is cancelled by The Fells for any reason, registration fees will be refunded. Students may withdraw and receive a full refund or apply payment toward another class up to five days prior to the class date. Unless special circumstances warrant, no refund will occur when withdrawal is within five days. Payment for Special Event tickets may not be refunded after the headcount has been made to the caterer, or beyond the “reserve-by” date. Requests for refunds prior to this date will be honored. Thank you for your understanding.
