Enchanted Fairytale Forest event planned at Ernie Miller Park on May 6

Celebrate the magic of nature and discover the hidden world of the wee folk and friends - both real and make believe - during a special event at the Ernie Miller Nature Center in early May.

Enchanted Fairytale Forest is the name of this event, which is now in its seventh year. This program is for all ages, but children up to 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Guests can visit activity stations at their leisure. Participants will follow the pixie path on a pirate treasure hunt through the forest. Don’t worry about the trolls as you search for nature's treasure. Guests can let their imaginations go wild as they design a fairy house and wand with the Green Fairy’s repurposing supplies. Enjoy a sweet treat at the tea party. The Fairy Queen will tell stories of magic and mischief. Live animals, music, and a trip through the wish tree make this an enchanted day to remember!

In case of inclement weather, this event will take place indoors. To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under Fun for All and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “nature & outdoors.”
