Common Vampire Bat Screech At The Reach - Hanford Reach Interpretive Center

Location & Time

Scared of spiders? Terrified of toads? Bewitched by bats? You shouldn't be, and we're happy to tell you why. Join us at for Screech At The Reach to explore the myths and truths about the creatures of Halloween. Adults want to be there at 5:30 p.m. sharp–that's when we'll have a presentation about these scary denizens of the night. Immediately after that, we'll have tables set up for kids to make clothespin bats, dissect owl pellets, or stroke a wolf pelt. Blue Mountain Wildlife will be on hand with live owls, and there will be spiders and snakes and scorpions. Experts will be on hand to talk about these creatures, or the Monument itself. The Reach will be open until 8:00 p.m. Normal admission fees apply, but if you bring a canned good for Second Harvest, you'll get $2 off the admission fee. Remember, 5:30 p.m. sharp! Hanford Reach Interpretive Center, 1943 Columbia Park Trail, Kennewick. Doors open at 4:30, the main presentation will be at 6:00 sharp, and The Reach will be open until 8:00.
