Ghoulish Garden Adventure

Sunday, October 27, 2019 | Noon to 4 p.m.  
Just in time for Halloween, experience a Ghoulish Garden Adventure at Lauritzen Gardens. Explore a variety of educational and fun activity stations throughout the garden. Learn about the mysteries of nature, get up close and personal with the amazing creatures that make the fall so festive, and make your very own crafts to take home. Activities are included with paid garden admission of $10 for adults and $5 for children 6-12. Garden members and children under the age of six are admitted free of charge.

2019 activities:

- Spooky Spiders- See some spooky spiders from Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium up-close and learn about what makes spiders so special
- Haunted Hallow Candy Stations  
- Live Birds with Raptor Recovery- Learn about the incredible adaptations of predatory birds and meet some special feathered friends

- Model Railroad Garden Ghost Town    
- Wicked Plants Wonderland- Discovery how plants defend themselves in the wild

- Creepy Crafts- Have a monstrously good time making crafts with Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska     

- Creation Station- Have fun making great, ghoulish crafts to take home 

- Compare costumes with members of the Central Garrison unit of the 501st Legion  

... and more!

Activities will be indoors and outdoors. Costumes are optional, but fun is mandatory! Children must be accompanied by an adult. Bring a camera to take memorable snap shots and a trick-or-treat sack to collect ghoulish goodies! The café will have a seasonal menu of beverages, snacks and food available for purchase. This spooktacular event is designed to provide a safe and fun Halloween outing for families in a garden setting.
