Building a Fairy HouseBuilding a Fairy House
Fairy House Building at the Willows

Saturday July 28, 2018 1 PM

480 Rt 385 Athens, NY

Building a fairy house is a wonderful way for children to use their imaginations and explore the natural world. We will read a book about fairy houses and then explore the habitats at the Willows at Brandow Point where participants will gather natural materials to construct their own fanciful fairy house. These small woodland cottages will be built in a magical spot where visitors will be able to see if any fairies have set up households!

While the event is free, registration is required.

Call 518 – 731-5544 to register.
