Come and meet the wandering “fairy lady,” enjoy face painting, learn about the life cycle of live butterflies.

The Children’s Playhouse and The Watauga County Library will also offer activities for children. Make a fairy garden with natural materials.

Please note that certain options are available for a nominal fee.

ExploreBoone.com reports that the event is a day dedicated to teaching children about the fascinating aspects of nature. Dr. Annkatrin Rose, botany professor at Appalachian State University, will engage children in learning about the life cycle of monarch butterflies. Children will also be able to “meet the bugs” and learn about pollinators and their importance in nature.
