Haunted Museum

On Saturday October 25 we celebrated Dia de los Muertos at the 11th Annual Haunted Museum.

Our members traveled to the land of the dead, met a few friendly skeletons, and discovered rarely seen specimens during this one-of-a-kind special event.



Check back later in the year for details regarding the 12th Annual Haunted Museum.

By invitation only — exclusively for Members at the Naturalist level and higher.
