Ijams Nature Center celebrated the release of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” last Saturday.
Hobbits, elves and wizards alike found something fun at this Hobbit-themed event. They made cloak pins, Hobbit ears, Hobbit door pendants and even decorated their own furry feet cookies (sounds gross, tastes great!). All this Middle Earth fun and they didn't even need to travel to the Lonely Mountain! - Jennifer Roder, Sabrina DeVault, Stephen Lyn Bales
Dr. Louise holds Gandalf and, yes, that's his real name!
