Enchanted Forest

Join Merry Lea this fall for an “enchanted” night hike! Trail guides will lead groups by lantern-light to meet real “live” animals on our trails. Our costumed staff and volunteers will answer questions about life as a native Indiana animal. This family-friendly evening is a great alternative to Halloween events too scary for young children.

This year we have implemented several protocols to protect everyone’s health during this event.
