Meet the Unhuggables of the Forest

Tuesday, October 24

Looking for a family friendly Halloween activity aimed at all ages?  On Tuesday, Oct. 24th from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Black Hawk State Historic Site will celebrate Halloween with a short walk in the moonlight to meet some of the Site's special "critters", such as chipmunks, foxes, spiders, snakes, bats and more. Hear the “animals” played by Augustana drama students tell their story about living in the Black Hawk Forest. Inside Singing Bird Center will be a “show and tell” by Site naturalist Chuck Wester and refreshments. This free event will be held in and around Singing Bird Center, accessed by turning north from Blackhawk Rd./Rte. 5 on to 15th St. in Rock Island. For more information, call (309) 788-9536.
