Get into the Halloween spirit at Joppa Flats during this free event perfect for kids of all ages. Examine live creepy crawlies, enjoy semi-spooky attractions, go on a nature treasure hunt, and take home creative crafts. For ages 2 to 6, storytelling, songs, and guided games that are silly, kooky, and only a little bit spooky will take place indoors. For ages 7 and up, learn about the deep sea, try one of our "ick"-speriments, handle live, slimy, gooey marine life, and enjoy scheduled Halloween nature stories. Fly in on your broom for an hour or stay all day for some fun pre-Halloween family time! Pre-registration is not required, but children must be accompanied by adults. Costumes are welcome for both kids and their caregivers! Sun., Oct. 14, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Free. All ages. Meet at the Joppa Flats Educational Center, 1 Plum Island Turnpike, Newburyport. www.massaudubon.org/Nature_Connection/Sanctuaries/Joppa_Flats
