With a path of lights and glowing jack-o-lanterns, guests at the Lost Island Nature Center’s Howleen Hoopla were set for a spooky and fun evening!

To kick off the night, guests were able to enjoy s’more making by the fire. A program on some critters that many may find creepy (but are mainly just misunderstood) was shared and featured an adult and baby garter snake, toad, tiger salamander, and mouse. Guests were then taken through Huston Prairie on a hayride. Visitors were able to take in the sights and sounds away from the bright lights and noises of everyday life and just enjoy what nature has to offer!

The evening was enjoyed by all ages! This was a two-night event with three sessions, limited to 10 participants, held each night.
