|Family Fun Nights|
The Highlands Center is giving parents and their kids a great excuse to hang out together for three awesome events! Each event is $2 for kids under 18 and $5 for adults, that's cheaper than going to the movies and way cooler! We'd like to thank Credit Union West for sponsoring these three fantastic and engaging events designed specifically for families!
Bug-A-Boo Bliss - Friday, August 24 @ 7:30 p.m.
Ever wonder what critters crawl around at night? Well now you can find out! Stay up a little later with us and explore the parts of insects, see who's attracted to light and why, create your own bug out of natural materials and listen to fascinating stories about insects, spiders and their kin at the Dead Bugs Society. This event is appropriate for all ages. $2 children; $5 adults
Raptor Rendezvous - September 1, 2012 @ 1:00p.m. - 3:00p.m.
Bring the whole family for a fun afternoon to get up close and personal with some of Arizona’s most magnificent raptors. Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation will bring special bird of prey guests- share their stories, answer questions and offer photo opportunities. In addition, Kenneth Jacobson from the Arizona Bald Eagle Nest Watch Program will give a talk about the local Bald Eagle population. $2 children; $5 adults
Halloween Happening - Friday, October 26 @ 6:00p.m.
Celebrate the night with our annual Hallow’s Eve event. Meet live wildlife, curteosy of Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary, explore many wonders and curiosities of nature along our Howl-o-ween Trail and warm up with fireside stories and s'mores. Enter your carved Jack O' Lantern into the contest and get your face painted as a costume enhancement! Our Halloween event offers parents another safe and alternative way to celebrate nature with their kids. All ages and costumes are welcome. $2 children; $5 adults
