What: As part of the ten-day Bay Area Science Festival Lindsay Wildlife Museum presents ‘Not-So-Scary Animals for Halloween,’ four days of fall fun featuring some of the world’s most frightening creatures – bats, owls, spiders, snakes, vultures and more – in a not-so-scary way. Each family friendly presentation includes meeting live animal ambassadors, learning about their special adaptations, and talking with their keepers.
Lindsay Wildlife Museum is the first-ever Bay Area Science Festival partner in Contra Costa County.
This collaborative public education initiative brings together leading academic, scientific, corporate, and non-profit institutions to showcase the region as an international leader in innovation. Based on similar festivals throughout the world, the 50+ festival events are expected to attract over 50,000 active participants, many of whom traditionally do not have access to quality scientific resources.
- While You Were Sleeping – Meet live nocturnal animals and learn why they stay up all night and how they find their way in the dark.
- Creepy Crawlies – Get up close to spiders, cockroaches and snakes and learn how these ‘creepy’ animals help the environment.
- Animal Myths – Are bats blind? Can a toad give you warts? Are all snakes poisonous?
