Chip Jenkins of Williamstown, NY tells trick n-treaters all about forest beetles during last year’s Nature’s Halloween Unspooked.

It’s the time of year to return to the woodland and join its spirits in a Halloween celebration.  Nature’s Halloween Unspooked will be held at the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center on Sunday, October 26, 2007 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Creatures of all ages will delight in the afternoon of free, fun for the whole family activities.

Nature’s Halloween Unspooked includes children’s games and crafts, storytime, light refreshments and a trick & treat trail, which will not scare young children. Along this trail, trick & treat’ers will meet and greet forest critters. The trick & treat trail will only be open between 3-4 PM and will cost $1.00 per child. The last group will leave the trailhead at 3:45.  All the other activities are free of charge. However, donations are always welcomed.

Nature’s Halloween Unspooked will be held rain or shine. Participants should dress to stay warm and to ward off the spirit of chill. Activities will be moved indoors with inclement weather.

The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center is located at 748 State Route 183, one mile south of Williamstown. If you would like more information on the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center or to receive a listing of upcoming public programs, contact the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 4-H Youth Development Program at 963-7286 x 401.
