With over 80 volunteers donating nearly 300 hours to help plan and run this event, there will be something for everyone. From 3 pm to 6 pm, on the 18th the nature center will need your help to carve at least 80 carved jack-o-lanterns to light the way for the Halloween Hike. The Halloween Hike starts at 5:30 pm and runs until 9 on October 20th, making this the 22nd annual hike.

With stories from Mr. Bat, plenty of creatures to join in on the fun, and Grandpa Spider demonstrating how he uses his web, there is plenty of fun to keep your littles busy.
