The Children’s Garden Fair is sponsored by McLennan County Master Gardeners in conjunction with the Carleen Bright Arboretum every year in mid-October. Get your hands dirty with Master Composters, learn about Birds & Beaks with the Audubon Society, and paint rocks with Waco Gem & Mineral Society. Also joining the festivities are Texas Master Naturalists, and the Woodway Youth Commission.
Come cast your votes for the Scarecrow Contest out on the Nature Trail! Children can participate in a variety of Jr. Master Gardener activities, such as making Grow Babies, popping popcorn, and learning about propagation. Other activities include a scavenger hunt, worm composting, paper sombrero making, giant bubble blowing and much more! Enjoy fun music and take pictures in the Arboretum’s beloved annual pumpkin patch.
Admission is free. Please contact the Arboretum office for more information. 254-399-9204
