Fairyland, one of our most popular programs, is returning April 27 to give boys and girls the opportunity to construct their very own fairy houses – or perhaps add to the ones they built last time. Participants are invited to collect natural materials from the orchards and meadows of Owl’s Hill or purchase special items with “fairy gold” at the Gnome Depot.  Pick a spot around Fairyland and create a dwelling fit for a fairy or elf. While visiting, stroll through our Storywalk® trail and read a story as a family while enjoying the natural beauty of our woods. Register here.

Everyone has fun digging in the dirt. But what is dirt? Why do plants grow from it? Who lives in it? Through hands on activities, exploration, and an educational story, you and your preschooler will dig learning about dirt.  Dress for the weather and be prepared to venture outside. Register Here
NOTE: Designed especially for children 3-5 years old and a favorite adult.
