Meet some of our resident live animals that are friends of fairies (turtles, snakes, frogs, lizards)! Afterwards we will venture into the woods to our Fairy Village to build houses for the fairies and woodland creatures. We will create this magical miniature world using twigs, rocks, acorns, pine cones, moss and flowers for fairies, hobbits, gnomes, mice, snails and more! Fairy houses will be left in the Village for our magical friends.
Animal Encounter and Water Exploration:
After meeting some of our resident aquatic animals (turtles and frogs) living in the Nature Center, we will head out with nets, buckets, magnifiers, and ID sheets to explore the rich wildlife hiding in the water by our pond, waterfall, or wetland boardwalk. Each guest will have the chance to try and catch tadpoles, water bugs, and maybe a frog or newt!
