Posted on Oct 2, 2018

The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History invites you to join us for “Snakes, Spiders, and Bats! Oh, my!” on Friday, October 26th from 5:30-8:00 pm.  The Buffalo Zoo’s education department will be on site from 5:30-6:30pm with their “Zoo Mobile” to introduce guests to an array snakes, bats and spiders, and from 6:30 to 8:00 three knowledgeable and passionate local biologists (Twan Leenders, Becky Nystrom, and Jonathan Townsend) will explore the causes and consequences of the common misconceptions surrounding these creatures that so many consider creepy. This seasonally appropriate event is sure to get you into the Halloween spirit! No tricks, just treats including a chance to meet live animals, fun facts about these misunderstood creatures, critter shaped cookies and apple cider. The cost to attend this program is $10 for adults, $2 for children (under 18), or $25 for a family. Warning: The décor in your haunted house might not seem so spooky after this experience! Please call 716-665-2473 for more information.
