National Get Outdoors Day
Saturday, June 10 / 10 AM – 3 PM
Included with General Admission

Come celebrate National Get Outdoors Day at VINS!

10 AM – 2 PM
Forest Fairy Hunts

Where do milkweed pods become bathtubs and beds, and acorn caps become dinnerware? In Fairy Town at VINS, of course! Building fairy houses with natural materials and trekking through the VINS forest while hunting for fairies offers children and their families a unique opportunity to connect with the natural world and to nurture respect for the environment.

Come visit VINS for an adventure sprinkled with the magic and wonder of forest fairies with a visit from our Fairy Grandmother and fairy house building in Fairy Town. Wearing wings is encouraged!

10 AM – 12 PM
Meet the Artist

As you enjoy the Raptor Exhibits, keep an eye out for guest artist Jessica Fligg. Observe as she creates a piece inspired by the beauty of our campus.

1 PM – 3 PM
