ANN ARBOR – Leslie Science & Nature Center will host an outdoor, family-friendly event on Oct. 30.

“Animal Haunts: Nature’s Nightlife” will feature close encounters with LSNC’s nocturnal animal ambassadors, including owls, bats, spiders and more.

The event will have two start times at 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to ensure proper distancing during indoor activities.

Tickets are $10 per person or $35 per family.

Other activities will include slimy, spooky science experiments, a scavenger hunt through the woods with prizes and a campfire.

Participants are encouraged to come in costume. Non-candy prizes will be handed out at each station, so attendees are also asked to bring a bag.

Masks will be required for all participants age two and up, regardless of vaccination status.
