Fernbank... but Later: Naturally aMAZEing is Friday, June 28 and for all ages. Enjoy full museum access, light bites and drinks, experiments, activities and more at both events.


ARTISTIC OUTDOORS — WildWoods will be home to two different artistic exhibits this month. First, make sure to see Flora, Fauna & Flight before it leaves June 23 and learn about how plants and animals defy gravity through colorful sculptures. Then, walk alongside larger-than-life metal sculptures of foxes, rabbits, flowers and more in Forest Forms starting June 29.


MULTIPLY YOUR FUN — To celebrate the grand opening A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature, we’re hosting Patterns at Play from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on June 8, a Discovery Day designed to complement our newest exhibit. Participate in crafts and activities like creating a suncatcher, playing with light and prisms, and making your own air-dry fossils at this event. See all the activities here.


AN ENCHANTING EXHIBIT — The crown jewel of this month is when our latest temporary exhibit, A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature, opens on June 8. Immerse yourself in this exhibit all about the patterns naturally occurring in the world through digital components, real artifacts and a 1,700 square-foot mirror maze. Then, when you’re looking for some more fun with patterns and puzzles, here are a few ideas for you.
