Come for a hoot of a Halloween at The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Enchanted Forest on Friday evening, October 26. An alternative, nature-themed Halloween celebration, the Enchanted Forest also introduces fascinating, entertaining and educational information about nocturnal animals in their natural habitat.
Children are encouraged to wear costumes for this unique and fun – not scary – event. Experience the Larsen Sanctuary at night while being escorted along the luminary trail by volunteers who light the way with flashlights. The festivities also feature 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.
The Center at Fairfield is located at 2325 Burr Street in Fairfield. The guided walks leave every fifteen minutes beginning at 5:15 p.m.; the last walk leaves at 7:30 p.m. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Ticket prices are: CAS members–$10/child, $2/adult; non-members–$15/child, $2/adult. To purchase your tickets online visit: www.ctaudubon.org/fairfield-home/, or call 203-259-6305 ext. 109.
