Come meet the creepy critters that call the Arboretum home! Just in time for Halloween, we will be introducing you to our resident tarantula, scorpion, millipede, hissing cockroaches, and worms in this fun and education program. You will learn about what makes these critters special, why people fear them, and gain a better understanding of and appreciation for these dynamic creatures we share the planet with. You will even get to touch some of them, with the guidance of our trained animal handler! After getting acquainted with our little friends, we will craft “creepy critters” of our own using natural materials collected from the Arboretum grounds.
