BOTANIC GARDEN HOSTING KIDS FALL FESTIVAL

The West Virginia Botanic Garden is hosting a fall children's festival from 1-4 pm Saturday at the garden, 1061 Tyrone Road.
It is free and open to the public. Fairy houses will be built in the expanded Fairy Garden. Some of last year's fairy houses survived the heavy snows, and some did not, so the woodland sprites need some new houses.
For a donation of $5, pictures will be made of each child with his or her fairy house, courtesy of C. McDaniel and Co.
The Natural Leaders Program, under the direction of Erin Himmel, will feature several children ages 9-12 demonstrating their knowledge of select nature topics. Natural Leaders is supported by a grant from IMPACT E*A*R*T*H.
The Morgantown Fun Factory will be there, making leaf and flower fairies, nature wreathes, and pounded flower prints. Other crafts will include pumpkin painting, pinecone bird feeders, nature bingo and many others.
Refreshments will be available, and order forms will be available to purchase spring blooming bulbs.
