The anxieties of first love. The betrayal of a community. An unfulfilled wish. The Fleetwing Fables invite you to walk with us as we share a trilogy of tales about the inner lives of birds. Animated by music from a trio of talented artists, this audio walk is a funny, dark, and hopeful look at survival through the eyes of our feathered friends.
This walk is recommended for ages 6+. There are a few steep inclines and uneven ground – if you have questions about the accessibility of the path please contact our Box Office: 1-866-546-8533.
