Kansas City, Mo. – Nature adds mystery and wonder to an autumn evening when the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center hosts HOWLoween 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, 4750 Troost Ave. in Kansas City. This free Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) event welcomes all ages to connect with nature in not-so-scary ways. Feel free to come in a costume.

Discovery Center staff and volunteers will transform the outdoor garden into an adventuresome walk with nature exhibits and fun activities for children and adults. HOWLoween stops along the trail will include birds of prey displays, Track or Treat, the Bone Yard, the Bat Cave, games, and crafts. A campfire with acoustic music will welcome attendees. The trees and shrubs along the center’s outdoor garden trail will be in their autumn colors. Visitors can also see indoor nature exhibits.

The Gorman Discovery Center is just a few blocks east of the Country Club Plaza. MDC connects people with nature in the heart of Kansas City.
