Twilight Spooky Hike at Norristown Farm Park on October 28th at 6:30 pm
Oct 28 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

TWILIGHT SPOOKY HIKE

It’s a spooky time of the year, just perfect for an evening hike. Fading light makes seeing more challenging, so we’ll need to rely on our other senses. We’ll be walking quietly so we can hear the sounds of the night. Learn about our night time animals. Hear a couple of local haunting tales on the way. Pre-registration is required. Sign up early! Registration is limited to 25 people. Meet in parking lot #2.

Ages: adults only; free.
