Join naturalist and student of folklore Dustin Clayton for an evening hike through the Halloween forest on Saturday, October 24th at 4:30 p.m. We'll walk and talk about the plant, animal, and mineral communities of the forest and prairies and their significance in the seasonal folklore and folk magic associated with Halloween. We'll examine how folklore and associated practices can be used as a gateway to deepening your relationship with the forest community. If time allows, we'll return to the lodge for a demonstration of some of the items and techniques discussed on the hike.
