Our 21st Annual Event!!!
Join us for the 21st Annual Halloween Glen! This humorous and educational outdoor adventure is a great alternative to usual Halloween events. Actors will present interactive skits along the luminaria-lighted trails of Hawthorn Glen, Milwaukee Recreation’s 23- acre nature center. Families can then make craft projects, watch Halloween cartoons and enjoy refreshments.
This year’s theme is Hometown Habitats. Join us for hare-raising excitement, tales of paw and order, and facts about natural hiss-tory in your own neighborhood. You’ll meet Milwaukeeans with long roots in the community. Find out which backyard animals are waiting in the wings.
Ages: This event is geared for (ages 3-12) and parent(s)/guardian(s). Children ages 2 and under may attend for free. Parent/guardian must register, pay and attend with child and the number of children 2 and under must be indicated. Fee is per person.
NEW: Tyke Hike (Saturday at 5:00 PM, Course # 47610)
This shorter hike is perfect for little ones eager to join in on the adventure! Our energetic tour guides will lead tykes and their families on a hike through Hawthorn Glen’s hometown habitats. Following the hike families are also welcome to watch Halloween cartoons, make craft projects and enjoy refreshments. We are offering this hike at a special price of $3.00 per person (hikers will visit 4 of the 8 stations).
