Other Event Highlights Include:
A costume contest where kids ages 12 and under can share their creativity.
The G-rated movie, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, will be shown under the stars in the Heard's outdoor amphitheater.
Those who dare can experience our new “Ghost Town” or take a trail detour after the movie through our "Haunted Forest" and encounter a ghost or creature of the night!
Visitors will get to walk through the Heard’s indoor exhibits, which will be open throughout the event, and outdoor exhibit, Animals of the World, which will be open until dusk.
The Heard recommends that guests bring insect repellant, flashlights, blankets and/or stadium seats for use during the movie. Guests may also bring their own picnic dinner and non-alcoholic beverages.
Admission to this event is $15 for adults, $10 for children ages 3-12, and FREE for children ages 2 and under. See www.heardmuseum.org for more details.
About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
The Heard was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard. Miss Heard was 80 years old when she saw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard’s mission of bringing nature and people together is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
