CREEPY CREATURES

Oct. 23

Sponsored by BASF

Beware the night for that’s when creepy creatures bite!  Meet the Mad Scientist for a spooky story time and discover what lurks in the dark as we bring out all sorts of creepy, crawly imaginary creatures.  Then, learn about the silent hunters who prey on the unsuspecting at night!  We’re talking about owls!  These spellbinding birds will keep watch while you dig through an owl’s pellet – the regurgitated, undigestible part of their food.  Yuck!
