Fayetteville’s Wild Weekend Kicks Off With Interactive Nature Exhibits

FAYETTEVILLE, W.Va (WOAY) –Fayetteville’s Wild Weekend Nature Festival kicked off this afternoon with hands-on nature exhibits for kids.

The National Park Service and the Department of Environmental Protection came to the Fayetteville Convention and Visitors Bureau to bring live and interactive exhibits for kids. This included bugs, frogs and butterflies as well as furs and fossils for them to touch. 

“You’re actually learning what’s in the forest and this is an opportunity that you don’t get every day to touch stuff,” Fayetteville Visitors Center Executive Director Tabitha Stover said. “The park service is doing animal calls, fur where you can actually feel it, see it, touch it, so I think that makes a big difference for getting people involved.”
