Oct. 18 Virtual Event at 6:30 pm

Hooved, webbed, and eight-legged creatures lurk about in the dark of night.
They are friendly and funny with just a touch of fright!
We've been spinning up a web of new ideas for our traditional Creatures of the Night event and invite you to join us at the Prairie House for an evening by the fire. You will encounter costumed creatures, a coyote, deer, turkey, and spider each with a tale to tell of their night life. Following the program, experience some new twists and turns along a self-guided hike where you will spy hidden objects and get a glimpse into the lives of some of the animals who now RIP in the park.
The evening 'wraps' up with take home treats delivered by an eight-legged friend!
