Animal Haunts: Nature’s Nightlife is a family-friendly event that will feature Leslie Science & Nature Center's nocturnal animals including owls, bats, spiders and more.

Bring the kids out for spooky, slimy, science experiments, or simply stay warm by their campfire. you can also earn prizes as you complete a scavenger hunt through the woods, searching for clues of animals that thrive in the dark.

Make sure the kids arrive in costume and they bring a bag to use to collect non-candy prizes at each station.

It's always tough to find cool and unique things to do with your kids around Halloween. I think this is very unique and as a bonus, your kids will actually learn something. Hell, you might too.

It's not every day that you get to interact with real live creatures of the night.
