Rock the Barn

  • Saturday, May 21st, 2022
  • 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Put on your boots and come on down for Dodge’s annual farm and music festival—all while supporting the Dodge Nature Preschool Scholarship Fund!

Enjoy live bands and musicians as spring blooms around the nature center. Bring a blanket to picnic with family and friends. Get up close to farm animals, make dandelion fritters, and ride the hay wagon. Opportunities to support the Scholarship Fund during the event include a bake sale, raffle baskets, lemonade stand, and more.

Proceeds from your ticket purchase go to the Scholarship Fund and you can easily add an additional donation during check-out. Online registration will close Friday, May 20 at 1 p.m. Day-of tickets will be available for $10/each, ages 2+.

Give the gift of nature education


Every child benefits from the outdoor classroom. Financial circumstances should never be a barrier to quality early childhood environmental education. Reduced tuition to Dodge Nature Preschool is available for those who need it to be—but only with your support. Preschool scholarships are community-funded, and your gift will introduce young learners to a lifelong, meaningful relationship with the natural world.

Your gift will have twice the impact! Donations to the Scholarship Fund will be matched up to $2,500 thanks to longtime supporters from The Medina Trust. They hope you will share their passion for the Dodge Nature Preschool and the positive impact it has on the lives of children. This generous matching gift is given in honor of James L. McCarty, past President of the Dodge Board of Directors.

Unable to join us at Rock the Barn? You can support the Scholarship Fund by making a donation here.
