Join us for Find Your Wings Week and our Wegmans Family Days! Delight in our Fairy Festival that will highlight magical vignettes of peeks into the secret world of fairies and our winged friends. Skip through the Botanical Gardens on a magical scavenger hunt for a prize at the end! Talk with our educators about interesting plants, winged pollinators and fairies galore! Visit our pollinator friends from Hahn's Honey Bees to learn more about the importance of pollinators, especially bees. Don't forget to also visit our friends from Prehistoric World to interact with some creatures you might find in a fairy forest! Prehistoric World is New York's only reptile zoo where visitors can interact with animals and get hands on with an array of amazing species.  On your way home, grab an activity bag to-go to continue the fun at home! 

This safely spaced event will be held inside the Botanical Gardens with safety guidelines in place to keep our participants, staff, and all of our loved ones safe.
