Kansas City, Mo. – Nature's nighttime creatures are not necessarily creepy, in fact, they're creatively fascinating. Celebrate nature on an autumn night at HOWLoween, as the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) staff at the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center turns the outdoor garden into a Wild Side Walk 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16.

This free event offers fun and treats for all ages. Kids will have a howling good time exploring nature stations such as Track or Treat, the Bone Yard and the Bat Cave. Staff and volunteers will host varied activities along trails throughout Discovery Center's prairie, woodland and wetland areas. The family fun will include some fireside treats.

The Gorman Discovery Center is at 4750 Troost Ave., just a few blocks east of the Country Club Plaza. MDC connects people with nature in the heart of Kansas City. Visitors can look at indoor nature exhibits and then step outside in our large native plant garden for HOWLoween fun.
