FREE EVENT!

Join us at Viles Arboretum for a different kind of Halloween-themed event! Trail of Treats offers a unique experience as participants travel a half-mile loop in pursuit of assorted treats and fun nature-themed activities. 

Show up in costume, or in whatever attire you feel most comfortable walking the half mile circuit in. Trail surfaces may be uneven so we at least recommend good shoes! This event is geared towards children and families, but all are welcome. 

This is a free event but please register anyone who will be participating in treat gathering so we have enough supplies!
