Find a Fairy Door at Mountsberg’s Pajama Night on May 20, 2017

Posted by on

The forest is home to many creatures. Some you can see easily and others may shyly peek at your through ferns or tree branches. If you look hard enough, you may find evidence that some of the most magical creatures live in our natural areas. On Saturday, May 20, we invite you to grab your coziest pajamas, and join us as we search for fairy doors and evening wildlife at Mountsberg Conservation Area.

The Fairy Doors Pajama Night includes a guided hike, craft, snack, and fireside gathering. Staff will guide you through the starlit forest on a quest for park themed, fairy doors. After the hike, children can create their own fairy door to take home. The evening will conclude with s’mores by the fire!

The Mountsberg Raptor Centre is currently home to 16 different species of native birds of prey. Many of the resident birds of prey have permanent injuries that have left them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild. In many cases, these injuries were caused by human activity. With the help of these feathered ambassadors, the Mountsberg Raptor Centre teaches the community about the native birds of prey that share our environment and how to reduce the negative impact we can have on them.
