|Enchanted Forest event planned at Ernie Miller Park on May 4|
Celebrate spring with the wonders of the forest - both real and make believe - during a special event at the Ernie Miller Nature Center in early May.
The May apples will be in bloom and you can see for yourself if the old tales that say fairies gather where the woodland wildflowers grow are true. Enchanted Forest is the name of this event which is back in 2013 for its third year. This program is for ages three and older with children accompanied by a parent or guardian. Come discover the hidden world of the wee folk and their friends - birds returning from migration and animals waking from hibernation. Participants can play a game of animal peek-a-boo, and design and build fairy houses in the forest. Wear your wings, make a wand, and take part in the fairy parade. Guests can visit activity stations at their leisure and hear the Fairy Queen tell stories of magic and mischief. Live animals, music, and a trip through the Wish Tree will make this an enchanted day to remember. Reservations are required and in case of inclement weather, this program will be held indoors. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under Fun for All and then under special events.
