Thank you all who made Saturday at Autrey Mill on April 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the most amazing Wild Weekendyet! This annual family event encourages all to “take a walk on the wild side,” and features an assortment of games and nature crafts.
Farmer Sue from the Art Barn featured a whole heap of her barnyard critters. The “Bubble Creation Station” is back by popular demand, drew attention to the wonderment of bubbles in nature. “Creature Features” introduced visitors to an amazing array of reptiles, while “What’s Bugging You?” highlighted beneficial bugs like butterflies, ladybugs and praying mantis. We were also pleased to feature Ken Barr’s Student Recital. Ken’s students played acoustic sets on the hour.
This event was made possible with the support of Keep North Fulton Beautiful, Atlanta Audubon Society, Fulton County Water Resources, Ken Barr’s Guitar, and the Georgia Reptile Society.
