    Clarksburg City Council met Thursday night to discuss ‘The Robinson Grand Theater', also known as the ‘Rose Garden Theater', that the city plans to acquire. 

The West Virginia Botanic Garden held it's 5th Annual Fall Children's Festival on Sunday.

The whole family could enjoy the yearly event with hands-on nature crafts, fairy house building, and pump painting.

The event also had seasonal refreshments and treats. Admission to the event was free and open to the public. Donations are accepted to keep the Botanic Gardens going through the off season.

There were also tables set up from the West Virginia Children's Discovery Museum, Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia. Ginger, the goat, Luna, the owl, and Buttercup the American kestrel also made appearances.

The mission of the West Virginia Botanic Garden (WVBG), in harmony with nature, seeks to enhance the quality of life through public enjoyment and education involving inspirational landscapes and displays of a rich variety of ornamental plants appropriate to the region.

The West Virginia Botanic Gardens hopes to feature a large variety of plants appropriate to the region's climate and soils in both designed and natural settings. Visitors can learn from these gardens in every season of the year. Most of the land is wooded and much will remain undisturbed except for trail construction and some plant enhancement.

The event was sponsored by the Kiwanis Foundation.
