The Friends of Land Between the Lakes invites the public to a magical event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22, at the Woodlands Nature Station in Land Between the Lakes.

A “Hogwarts Howl-O-Ween: The Sorcerer’s Stone” will include multiple natural history programs based on the beloved fantasy world of wizards and witches.

Young wizards and witches, welcome to Hogwarts! Students are advised to attend their classes on time, beware the troll in the dungeon and complete the challenges to find their very own Sorcerer’s Stone (also known as the Naturalist’s Stone). Between classes, make a magic wand, learn spells and meet some fantastic beasts! First-year Hogwarts students will walk among professors and prefects, search for Aldo the baby Bigfoot, discover both real and magical creatures, and avoid the perils of an enchanted trail. Costumes and house colors encouraged. For the safety of Nature Station’s fantastic beasts, please leave pets at home.
