Creatures of the Night! A Family Friendly Pre- Halloween Special!
October 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
This FREE event is a part of Spring into Parks which is a WA Parks Foundation initiative supported by Lotterywest.
See the animals of Herdsman Lake from a very different perspective at a unique night-time event at the Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre in the lead up to Halloween! Be prepared to be fascinated as we explore by torchlight the critters of the dark.
Get dressed in your spooky costumes, grab a torch, and come along for a very special opportunity to see some of the nocturnal animals of Herdsman Lake – including frogs, spiders, nocturnal birds and more – at their most active, after dark!
This fun, family event will include a sausage sizzle and drink, face-painting, shadow puppets, craft activities, a talk by PHD candidate Natalie Grassi, and a guided nature night stalk around the Herdsman Lake boardwalk. Feel free to dress up for this alternative to Halloween. No tricking, but a real treat as you learn about the creatures of the night!
The event will run from 6pm to 8:30pm on Friday 27th October at the Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre (Cnr Flynn & Selby Streets, Wembley).
This is a FREE event, and includes a sausage sizzle and drink, face painting, informative talk, crafts and guided walk. Registration is essential as there is a maximum of 80 particpants.
Please bring warm clothing, insect repellent, torch & closed shoes /gumboots.
