spooky campfire night
Spend a spooky, but family-friendly night beneath the stars and towering trees of Pilcher Park. Cozy up to a campfire while roasting marshmallows and listening to eerie stories told by our naturalists. In case of inclement weather, alternate activities will take place inside.
Read the storybook Trail and craft
Join us for a guided hike on our Storybook Trail! We will read a story to you as you walk along the trail and then come inside to make a fun craft. The stories and crafts will be related to the current season.
