EcoTarium’s “Science Tricks & Animal Treats” Halloween event on October 26 & 27!

Grab your cloak: the EcoTarium is in disguise this Halloween!

Why choose between tricks and treats when they’re so exciting? Join our educators for sneaky science programs about animal camouflage, invisible forces, and secret powers, then join our wildlife keepers to learn about the treats and training that enrich our resident animals lives. For maximum fun, test drive your Halloween costume – or come in disguise!

Event Activities

  • Design enrichment toys for our animals and watch them play
  • Experiment with surprising chemical reactions and crafty camouflage
  • Drop by the Glow Zone and see what lights up
  • Laser maze
  • Glowing experiment zone
  • Glowing sensory zone

  • Wear your Halloween costume and have your face painted
  • Snag candy and other goodies at our trick-or-treat stations

Note: After careful evaluation and reflection, the museum will not offer the Great Pumpkin Festival evening event any longer. Instead the new Science Tricks and Animal Treats event aims to engage visitors about the sneaky science of disguise: such as camouflage, invisible forces and other secret powers that animals possess.
