Walk on the Wild Side at Creepy Critter Encounters
Kids of all ages are invited to put a little nature into Halloween at Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge’s Creepy Critter Encounters from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 28th. Attendees can see a live owl, insects, and reptiles. Visitors can also learn about creatures of the Refuge on a nature walk, create Halloween crafts, and listen to stories about creepy critters. Before the close of the event, visitors are welcome to hoot for owls and howl for coyotes. Come in costume for a special treat!
Creepy Critter Encounters provides free family fun and will be held rain or shine at the refuge Visitor Center near Lake Lowell. The Visitor Center entrance road is located at the intersection of Roosevelt and Indiana in Nampa.
