The Origins of Halloween Night Hike

Saturday, Oct 26

6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join us on a journey through the woods on a crisp autumn night. You will follow your guide on a trail of glowing Jack O'Lanterns; along the way you stop to meet the characters in an Irish Folktale that unfolds along the path. While other Halloween programs are designed to frighten, our goal is to educate and enchant We attempt to make the children feel comfortable in the outdoors, and hope to engender a feeling of awe and respect for nature, all while having fun. Guided hikes begin every 15 minutes; last hike begins at 8:30 p.m. Space is limited; register early!
