Description: Come on out for a fantastic fall festival from 4-8 p.m.! Join us to explore the world of the misunderstood. Many animals may give some the creeps but are actually beneficial! Meet creepy  crawlies and learn more in our live animal presentations at 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30. Take a stroll down one of our naturalist-led hikes to discover more about these different animals. Meet some of the nature center's "stranger" animals on display. Sit outside, enjoy a fire and a few fall treats or come on in for fall crafts. Kids can fish at the pond from 4-6 p.m. and have a hands-on experience with fish and worms, and everyone can try their hand at lure-painting until supplies run out. Bring the whole family for the fun to this event appropriate for all ages!
