Are we scared yet?

Spend Halloween with the Peabody

We all know snakes and spiders really are not scary - but nature's little pest controllers will play that role from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 31 at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, 170 Whitney Ave.

"The Natural History of Witches and Wizards: A Peabody Halloween," is the Peabody’s annual celebration of the animals and nature-based traditions associated with Halloween and will feature creatures like spiders and snakes as well as some of the strangest-looking specimens from the collections.

There also will be mask-making and other fun educational activities, organizers said. The cost is included with Museum admission of $5-7, no charge for children younger than 3.
