Important ticket information 

New this yearHalloween Haunts Matinee Debut!

Highlights include:

  • Wehr’s woodland is transformed into an Enchanted Forest complete with a talking owl, a wiCreepy Crawlies at Halloween Hauntsse-cracking skeleton and even some rapping arthropods.
  • Glowing mushrooms and happy ghosts are ready to surprise families that follow the Jack-o-lantern lit trail.
  • The trip through the Enchanted Forest is just spooky enough to keep the kids enthralled, but is not designed to give anyone a nightmare. In fact, most folks leave with a smile on their face and a new appreciation for nature’s misunderstood creatures.
  • Visitors are treated to a snack of cider and popcorn and can enjoy games, crafts, face painting and fortune telling in the Gardner Room after their walk.  There is even a magic show to enjoy while you wait for your hike to start! It all makes for a great evening of entertainment and education.
