Go for a hoot of a Halloween at The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Enchanted Forest. This is a nature-themed Halloween celebration. The Enchanted Forest introduces fascinating, entertaining and educational information about nocturnal animals in their natural habitat and is fun for the entire family.
Children are encouraged to wear costumes for this unique and fun – but not scary – event. Participants will experience the Larsen Sanctuary at night while being escorted along the luminary trail by volunteers who light the way with flashlights. The night also features fall-themed craft making, Halloween snacks and a chance to meet some of the Center’s creepy, crawly critters. The Enchanted Forest is held rain or ‘moon’ shine.
