Scary Creature Feature at Asbury Woods


Asbury Woods presents the 25th annual Scary Creature Feature, scheduled for Thursday, October 10; Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Nature Center at Asbury Woods.

Scary Creature Feature is a fall, family event complete with hayride, donuts and cider, activities, storytelling and a guided walk through the woods where guests encounter and learn about some not-so-scary, nocturnal creatures that live in the forest. It’s the perfect chance to explore the woods at night and enjoy the cool, crisp air of an autumn evening.

This year, we have revamped the tour to showcase different parts of the trails during our guided walks. In addition to this, we have a new “scary” creature to feature, the Luna Moth! This moth is another native nocturnal species highlighted on the tour along with the owl, spider, skunk, salamander, and bat.
