Hoot and Howl: Day of the Dead

When: Sat., Nov. 1, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. 2014

This is a different kind of way to celebrate the Mexican holiday of Día de los Muertos. The center will be remembering extinct species with poems and epitaphs, sugar skull decorating, face painting and more. There will also be Halloween games, a costume contest, and other activities that include meeting raptors, owls and the center’s resident “death eaters,” aka vultures. (Anita Overcash)
