Celebrate "A Mostly Green Halloween" at The Gillespie Museum of Minerals! This 11th annual fair provides a showcase of hands-on activities and experiments demonstrating some of the mysteries of the plant and animal world. The activities encourage visitors to engage with the wonders of nature. Gillespie Museum guides and Florida native plant interns will lead activities in the museum and on its grounds, including a scavenger hunt, Mysterious Microscope chamber, book walk and watercolor workshop.
All are welcome to explore the museum’s mineral collections and earth science displays, including the newest exhibit Agatized Coral. The public is invited to participate in this free, family-friendly Halloween-themed event, which is one of the museum’s monthly Science Saturdays and welcomes scientists of all ages (children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult). Costumes are encouraged!
