The is gearing up for its 18th annual spooky walk, but to make it as spectacular and spooky as years past, the wildlife refuge says it needs volunteers and not just a few.
According to Trish Kaloski, the Wildlife refuge is looking for 100 adult and family volunteers to act as spooky walk guides and ticket takers. Volunteers are also needed to decorate the spooky trail and dress up as scary and educational characters.
Each year, the refuge dares the community to explore the trail, which takes about 40 minutes to hike with a guide. All walks require pre-registration and cost $10.
This year's spooky walks will take place on Friday, Oct. 21 and Saturday, Oct. 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Aside from the walk, the refuge hosts is hosting an Enchanted Forest Trail hike for children ages 2 to 7 years old. The walks take place on Sat. Oct. 29 and Sunday, October 30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., costs $7, and also feature games and activities in the refuge's parking lot. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes.
For more information on volunteering, call 653-4771. All volunteers under 16 must be accompanies by an adult.
