Paid reservations are required by Monday, Aug. 1. Call (716) 569-2345 during business hours to register and pay with a credit card or register online. There is limited enrollment in this class.

The fee for the class is $12 for the public or $9 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15 and includes all materials.

Fairy Terrariums is the second in the Nature Center’s August Coffee Shop Series. These programs encourage interactive discussion around a nature-based topic or activity.  Participants experience and learn together. Coffee, tea and snacks are provided.

You can learn the basics of how to make a terrarium. Under the guidance of senior naturalist Sarah Hatfield, participants will use sustainably harvested materials from the Nature Center grounds, collect a few extras, and create a touch of whimsy with some fairyland additions.

You will have a beautiful terrarium to take home, complete with care instructions, and make some friends and have great conversations, too.

Plan to dress for the weather and be prepared to walk outside to collect materials. If you have a little trinket you’d like to add, bring it along.

The other August Coffee Shop programs are Culinary Herb Container Gardening on Tuesday, August 2; Outdoor Fitness on Thursday, August 4, and Working for Monarchs on Friday, August 5.
