Celebrate a spooky, ooky, kooky Halloween at Sternberg
10/16/2009

For a "hair-raising, spine-tingling, stomach-turning good time," Fort Hays State University's Sternberg Museum of Natural History presents a Halloween program with "spooky, kreepy, ooky, kooky kritters."

On Saturday, Oct. 24, kids ages 4 to 12 can experience spiders, snakes, owls, bugs, bats and rats. The program will be presented from 1 to 2 p.m. and from 3 to 4 p.m. Kids will have the opportunity to sample "witch's brew and road-kill cookies, boiled down from the blood, bones and brains of your favorite animals," said Brian Bartels, museum educator.

The registration deadline for the event is Monday, Oct. 19. Space is limited to 30 kids per session, and each child must be accompanied by an adult. Museum members may attend for free. For non-members, the cost is $5.
