These programs are designed for children 3-5 years old (parent must stay with child under 4yrs). Classes meet at the Watershed Center on the Reserve and always include outdoor exploration, so children and adults should dress accordingly.

October 24 - Nature of the Night Halloween Hike & Campfire
Families (children 4-12 years old)
Join the Education Staff to explore the ecology of night and magic of Halloween. Early sessions (4:00-5:30PM) are for families with children 4-6 years old. Once the sun goes down (6:30-9:00PM), a little more spook-tacular fun is included for families with older children. All sessions include our forest campfire and roasted marshmallows. Bring flashlights, no costumes or pets please. Pre-registration and payment are required.
