On Saturday, October 16, Hartwick Pines State Park will once again be hosting the annual “Critters in the Moonlight” Halloween Walk. This event will be held from 4:30 to 8:30pm on Saturday evening. While this program is especially focused for families with young children, all who come out will enjoy the Jack-O-Lantern lit walk through a portion of the Old Growth Forest and meet several of Michigan’s forest animals. These animals portrayed by costumed volunteers will tell you a little about themselves to dispel some common misconceptions about them. These “critters” will include a bat, skunk, bear, wolf, snake, owl, spider, vulture, and others. After the walk, enjoy a cup of cider and a donut at the picnic shelter. Children are encouraged to dress in their Halloween costumes and will receive a treat bag, while supplies last.

The “Critters in the Moonlight” Halloween Walk will be held at the park’s picnic area. There is no admission for this program, however a State Park Motor Vehicle Permit is required for park entry.
