Drop into Pajarito Environmental Education Center between 1-4 p.m. Oct. 31 for a creepy, crawly Halloween. There will be games, crafts, a spider-hunting walk and from 2-3 p.m., see live creatures from the Harrell House of Natural Oddities.
Halloween at PEEC will be unlike any other. Children and adults alike will enjoy getting in the holiday spirit making crafty owls, spiders, bats and more to decorate for the season.
And what better way to enjoy the crisp, fall air than a short hike? Participants will search for spiders on the nature trail and use magnifying glasses to find the smaller critters.
Then stay out on the lawn for games like Ghost in the Graveyard, Capture the Ghoul and Spooky Scavenger Hunt.
The Harrell House of Natural Oddities was the hit of PEEC’s Summer Family Evenings. More than 100 people came to see their fascinating critters, which include tarantulas, scorpions, millipedes, centipedes, giant cockroaches and crabs.
PEEC has invited the Harrell family back for Halloween, which is the time to take another look at these creepy creatures. The Harrell House will be open for viewing from 2-3 p.m.
This event is free for PEEC members and $7 per child for non-members. Parents should plan to stay with their children. There’s no advance registration required.
