Don your Halloween costume and head up to Heckscher Farm to trick or treat with your favorite farm friends. Grab a map and head off in search of different treats at the trick or treating stations around Heckscher Farm. See what Dakota the Clydesdale, the calves Moose and Monty, or the new little piglets have to offer. Then, celebrate all things creepy and crawly at the annual "Ick Fest" at Overbrook Nature Center building. Visit snakes, tarantulas, lizards, worms and other animals. Explore the slime table, make crafts featuring bats and spiders, and have your picture taken with a snake.

About Stamford Museum and Nature Center
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of art and popular culture, the natural and agricultural sciences, and history. The museum is a vital cultural and educational resource for the community, and a focal point for family activity and interaction. It seeks to inspire creativity, foster self-discovery, promote environmental stewardship, and nurture an appreciation for lifelong learning through exhibitions, educational programs, and special events. Enjoy a picnic on the Meadow, walk over 80 acres of nature trails, drop in to the Heckscher Farm and say hello to the animals, and don't miss the latest exhibition in the Bendel Mansion Museum Galleries.
