Meet some of the fascinating but often misunderstood critters of Emily Oaks Nature Center! This popular event is intended to be fun and informative – NOT frightening. As you’re guided along the trail, you'll investigate the cases of several creatures known as the Un-Touchables, watching skits with costumed characters to find out what makes them special and why they shouldn’t be touched (like Wasp, Poison Ivy and Skunk). Your visit will end at a campfire featuring snacks and songs.

Advanced tickets are sold for specific times on Friday and Saturday; up to 20 tickets are available for each time. Tickets will be sold at the gate ONLY if available.

Fee per person: $7
Purchase tickets here.

In case of heavy rain, the event will be moved indoors.

For all ages.
