Family Jack O’Lantern Hikes

Join us on family-friendly jack o’ lantern lit hike to explore the night life of owls, bats and spiders at The Morton Arboretum.  We’ll also decorate pumpkins and end by roasting marshmallows over a fire. Children must be accompanied by adult.

Notes:  Flashlights recommended.  Earlier sections suggested for small children as the pathways are only lit by jack o lanterns.  Limit 15 per section.  
Recommended ages: For families with children 4 and older (though any age may participate!)
