Not-So-Scary Estuary

Join the Annual Costume Contest and Nature's Trick-or-Treating Adventure!

Have a howling good time in nature this Halloween season with the return of our 6th Annual Not-So-Scary Estuary Family Discovery Day. Our theme is Changing Climate, with performances about sea level rise, a zero-waste activity and animal meet and greets. Kids in costume can join the parade with prizes awarded, and more fun inside and outside along the nature center loop trail.

When nature is more familiar, it's not-so-scary after all!
