Families are invited to celebrate Halloween
at MUN "BOO-tanical Garden
Saturday & Sunday, October 25th & 26th, 2014
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Did you know that many Halloween traditions and superstitions are connected to nature and the fall season, particularly the harvest?

Join us for a fun weekend of Halloween arts & crafts, story time, puppet shows, and face painting. Come on a special Halloween nature hike with our education staff and explore the Batty Bat Trail and Halloween Discovery Path. Discover why bats, owls, crows, spiders, and even witches' brooms are not all that scary once you get to know them. The exhibit area will feature special Halloween displays.

A full weekend of family fun for young children and parents alike.
