Programs at Wellesley Conservation Land Trust in Weston, MA
Woodland Troll and Fairy House Building
The annual Troll and Fairy House happens every spring at Pickle Point Sanctuary during Wellesley's Wonderful Weekend (Saturday, May 21st, 2022, 1-3PM). On arrival at Pickle Point Sanctuary the children choose a tree and build their own Troll or Fairy House using the natural materials gathered along their walk. It is a magical event and the children have a great time last year imagining their fairy land
