  • A haunted hayride
  • A haunted cabin (but not too scary)
  • Frightening foods
  • Interpretive nature walks
  • A portable climbing wall
  • Family games for children of all ages

Participants will also learn about and have the chance to hold snakes, lizards and other “creepy crawlers.”

Everything is family-friendly and suitable for all ages. Touch of Nature is wheelchair and stroller-accessible. A parent or guardian must accompany children to the event.

The Haunted Hollow will go on rain or shine so we encourage participants to dress accordingly for the day’s weather.
