Celebrate this wonderful season with the Friends of the Ansonia Nature Center (FANCI)! Take a ride over hill and dale in our horse drawn STORY hay wagon, where you’ll hear some spooky Halloween tales! Learn about bats, spiders and owls! Have some fresh-squeezed apple cider and fresh-made donuts, then visit the Friends Nature Shop to buy some creepy and crawly nature-related gifts. You can try your hand at pumpkin carving, get your face painted, and make some creative crafts. All proceeds will benefit the Nature Center’s playground project efforts. RAIN or SHINE.
