Go on a magical scavenger hunt for a prize at the end. Peek into a charming fairy village, see a model train and talk with educators about interesting plants, winged pollinators and fairies galore. Visit the pollinator friends from Hahn’s Honey Bees to learn more about the importance of pollinators, and check out the Botanical Gardens’ live beehive. Join the Botanical Gardens Education Team for a special fairy scavenger hunt to find the fairies. You’ll also get to create your own fairy wand and fairy wings out of some natural materials.

Visit with Prehistoric World to interact with some colorful creatures that might be found in a fairy forest. Prehistoric World is New York’s only reptile zoo where visitors can interact with animals and get hands on an array of amazing species. Shop with Green Apothecary Shop and learn about the importance of healthy lawns with the Erie County Environmental Management Council and their Spokesgnome, Frederick Lawn Gnomested.
