Are bats flying mice or rats? Do bats live in graveyards and suck blood?

The family-friendly interpretive program also features crafts and games, pumpkin carving, wagon rides and more.



All tickets purchased at the door. $5 adults, $5 for children; those ages 5 and under are free. Free crafts and games are included; other activities such as hayrides, pumpkin carving, and face painting as well as barbecue dinner will be available for purchase. Proceeds benefit Tucker’s K-12 outdoor education program.
