The N.C. Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill will host its Magic in the Garden festival for families later this month.
The event is set for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sept. 23, and is designed for kids ages 4 to 10 with an accompanying adult. Admission is $10 per child. It's free for adults.
The event includes an afternoon of hands-on nature activities in the Children’s Wonder Garden, including gnome home building and information about carnivorous plants, seeds that fly and caterpillars. There also will be nature-themed crafts and more. Participants are invited to come dressed as their favorite plant or animal.
