For two nights each October, the trails surrounding The Wilderness Center are filled with the laughter and excitement of families discovering the nocturnal creatures of the Enchanted Forest. This year, as we celebrate the 30th year of this family-friendly event, we invite families of all ages to join us for Enchanted Forest: The Chew, Chomp & Slurp!

This year at the Enchanted Forest Mouse, Bat, Salamander, Skunk, Spider and Coyote will invite families into their forest home to share the recipes of their favorite culinary treats! As guests are escorted along our pumpkin-lit trails by volunteer ‘fireflies,’ these friendly animals will sing songs, tell jokes and share stories of how they forage and feed themselves in the nighttime woodlands.

Following this 45-minute walk, families can return to the Interpretive Building for refreshments.
Children and adults are welcome to wear non-scary costumes.

Members $6; Non-members $8;
Children 3 and under free.

No reservation cancellations will be accepted after
