Winter Harbor, Maine - On Saturday, October 26, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., children ages 12 and under are invited to join Acadia National Park rangers on the SERC campus at Schoodic Point to explore the “eeek” in ecology. Meet at Moore Auditorium.

Activities will include games and art, a scavenger hunt, and a tour of the “Deep Boo Sea.” Learn about the creepy crawlies, bats, and spiders we have all around us. Kids are encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costumes for the contest at 4 p.m.
