Event Festivities: Activities for the whole family!

  • See live “Birds of silent flight” (owls)

Creepy Crawlies will run rain or shine.  50% of the activities are indoors.  Rain gear is suggested.   Wristbands are still available both nights.  Advanced purchase is still recommended to guarantee your spot, although we will sell remaining wristbands at the door for $12/person.   Once they are sold out, there will be no more admissions.  We typically sell out by midweek before the event.  

Not only is this a fun program for you and your family, but this is our largest fundraiser.   Your wristband sales help support public programs and other operational services throughout the year.  Thank you for making Heckrodt Wetland Reserve your nature center for all seasons.
