Wildflower Fairy Trail @ Infirmary Mound Park
May 28 @ 7:30 am – 8:30 pm
The magic returns to Infirmary Mound Park! We are so glad the fairies have migrated back to the Wildflower Trail and moved in today. They were excited to find a beautiful display of spring wildflowers waiting to greet them! Their village will be up through the month of September! And more fairies will be moving in at times over the summer! Will you find them all? This year you can also use the United Fairy Postal Service to write to the fairies. They may even write you back!
To access the trail, park at the Shelter 6 parking area. Visit the sign near the playground and grab a map or print one at home! Follow the signs and map around Mirror Lake to the start of the Fairy Trail. If Shelter 6 is full, you can park at the Shelter 5/horse gravel lot. Find the map here: https://lickingparkdistrict.com/activities/
The start of the Wildflower/Fairy Trail is about 1/4 mile from the parking area at Shelter 6. The actual Fairy Trail is a 1/4 mile loop.
The wee folk wanted us to share some Fairy Directives while visiting:
1) Please be kind to all creatures!
2) Leave No Trace! Please do not leave any glitter, trash, or plastic. These can hurt the fairy friends.
3) Please stay on trail! There are plants like poison ivy and stinging nettle in the woods in this area!
4) Please leave houses as you find them! So the next visitors can experience the magic as well.

Blooms & Butterflies @ Franklin Park Conservatory
May 28 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Butterflies take flight once again for Blooms & Butterflies.
Stroll amid hundreds of colorful, exotic butterflies flying freely through the Pacific Island Water Garden Biome, a warm tropical haven filled with bright nectar blooms. Surrounded by lush flora, watch as butterflies soar overhead, bask on plants and sip on nectar.
Butterflies are most active during periods with bright, clear sunlight. At the Conservatory, butterflies receive all the care and nutrition necessary to live long lives—typically longer than they’d live in the wild. Touching butterflies, trying to feed them, attempting to attract them to you, or interacting with them beyond observation can cause harm.
