THINGS TO DO
The fairies are back and they have taken over Tower Hill! From June through August search throughout the gardens for their magical homes. Signs throughout the garden will let you know where you can locate these enchanted dwellings. We encourage everyone to enjoy the fairy architecture and/or try our fairy home challenge below!
- Search the special gardens (marked by sign) for the fairies magical homes.
- Count how many you were able to find
- Share one or all your fairy house photos with us on social media and let us know how many you found! At the end of August we will post on social media the exact number of fairy houses that were built this year.
Take a walk in the Inner Park and enjoy a story. Each step on the trail is a new page of the tale. Make sure to come back to enjoy a brand-new story every month. Each story is guaranteed to brighten any walk in the woods. Also, make sure to check out our Youth Online Resources for some fun activities related to the stories.
June: Garden of Ordinary Miracles
July: Over in the Meadow
August: Rah Rah Radishes
Can you complete our outdoor scavenger hunt? Explore the gardens and take to the trails to find a variety of, no-touch, site-specific nature challenges. There are fifteen challenge in all. Share your scavenger hunt photos with us on social media!
