Thank you to all who part in the 2019 Enchanted Forest. Attendance hit record numbers since starting this event 12 years ago. This event wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of Audubon’s volunteers. From planning and setting up to acting, guiding and serving popcorn, volunteers are an integral part of making this a magical event.

Thank you to the community businesses and partners who also provide their support in sponsorship or in-kind donations. Your generosity is appreciated.

Audubon looks forward to seeing you next year, Friday and Saturday, October 9 and 10, 2020.  

Walk the Nature Center’s luminary lit trails and meet talking animals who share stories about their lives. This is a wonderful non-scary Halloween event for children and their adults. Talking animals will engage your imagination, maybe make you laugh and teach you something about the wildlife in the region. Stay for crafts and snacks as you explore the Nature Center after your walk. For an additional $3, you can also earn a Fun Patch, perfect for scouts or others looking for a fun way to learn and experience the event.
Costumes are encouraged.

$12 Adults; $9 Nature Center members
$6 Children 3-15
free 2 and under
Group rates are not available.
