If you love nature and Halloween, dress up for Howl-o-ween at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. Come dressed in your finest costumes and bring your favorite treat bags for a fun-filled afternoon on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 1-3 p.m.
Walk the boardwalk loop where costumed volunteers will be passing out treats along the way. Answer a fun nature question to earn your treat from each station. Enjoy spooky story time and a crafts station in the ONWR Visitor Center. You can also meet National Wildlife Refuge System mascot, Puddles the Blue Goose.
Coffee, cider, and donuts will be available in the Visitor Center. Friends of Ottawa NWR will also host Truck or Treat during the same time. To RSVP for a spot, call Jenni at 419-704-0221.
The event is free to the public and sponsored by Friends of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. In case of inclement weather, we will move all activities into the Visitor Center. Donations from this event will be used to help Friends of Ottawa NWR support Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge with conservation, education, and restoration efforts.
