Families Join Tree Frog & Friends at Nature Station 'Howl-O-Ween' Bash

The season of Halloween may be just too frightening for some, so Land Between the Lakes' Woodlands Nature Station offers a family friendly activity this Saturday. The 20th Annual Howl-O-Ween is a kid-friendly, non-scary daytime event featuring Tree Frog and his Superheroes. Families take a guided walk through a forested trail, meeting costumed animal characters along the way, with singing and treats. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte speaks with Nature Station's Aviva Yasgur about the event.

"In my personal opinion, it is one of the most fun events that we do at the Nature Station all year."

Kids will meet actors dressed as tree frogs and skunks along a wooded trail and learn about their "super powers" through activities, songs and Halloween treats.

Aviva Yasgur is among the actors involved in Howl-O-Ween on Saturday. Enjoy treats, face painting, live animals and games. It costs $5 per person and includes same day admission to the Nature Station. Tickets go on sale at noon, tours begin at 1 p.m., the last tour is at 4 p.m., activities end at 4:30 p.m. Dress for the weather. For more information, call 270-924-2299.
