Winter Fairy House Fun

Monday, January 20 | 1:30- 3:00 PM

Nature is full of lots of surprises-maybe even fairies! Come join us where we will build a house in the woods for fairies and nature’s friends to visit. The simple challenge of creating a fairy house creates an opportunity that encourages outdoor exploration and nurtures a connection with the natural world. 
Open to all ages, recommended for those 3 and up.
Please register by calling 219-844-3188.
Organized groups (scout or otherwise) should have each family call individually to sign up or contact us about a private group experience.
