Spooky Nature Trails

Friday, Oct 20 & Saturday, Oct 21

Boo! Head to the Nature Center for our annual Halloween festivities, Spooky Nature Trails, on Friday, October 20 & Saturday, October 21.

Explore our woodland trails with glowing jack-o-lanterns lighting the way. Our nighttime autumn forest is filled with frightful and delightful, weird and wild animals, as well as fantastical ghosts, goblins, ghouls and other spooky surprises. 

In addition to the haunted woods, visitors will enjoy spooky crafts for children, games and up-close visits with the Nature Center’s resident snakes, turtles and frogs.

Spooky Nature Trails is best for children up to age 12 and their adults, and of course, costumes are encouraged.
