Jamestown, NY – How much fun could you have making your own fairy garden terrarium?

You can find out at the Audubon Nature Center on Wednesday morning, August 3.

There is something charming about terrariums – the green moss and damp air and growth behind glass. There is something magical, even for adults, about fairies – delicate, fleeting, and rare. Combine the two and you get something unique and intriguing that grows plants and imaginations.

At this 9:15-11:15 a.m. workshop in a coffee shop-like setting, 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 fee for the class is $12 or $9 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15 and includes all materials.

Paid reservations are required by Monday, August 1: Call (716) 569-2345 during business hours to register and pay with a credit card or click on “Coffee Shop Series: Fairy Terrariums” at www.jamestownaudubon.org. There is limited enrollment in this class.
