Annual Halloween Event

The 21th  Annual Halloween Event will be held Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary.  This is a fun family event suitable for all ages. Kids are welcome to come in their costumes!

Our event includes a pumpkin lit walk through a darkened Nature Center where participants will encounter various animals portrayed by area youth. These animal characters will educate you about themselves and their wild ways in a fun and light-hearted way.

We are always looking for youth volunteers to be a part of this event–please contact Kim Diedrich at (920) 391-3677 if you are interested.  Rehearsals are typically once a week starting in September.
