The Preservation Parks of Delaware County have some very fun (and free!) family events happening this weekend, just in time for Halloween!

On Saturday, Oct. 24, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., come to the lodge at Shale Hallow Preserve, 6320 Artesian Run, Lewis Center 43035) and then head out on a scavenger hunt. Hike the trails, then join around the campfire for fun and refreshments.

And on Sunday, Oct. 25, you can hike the Trick or Treat Trail from 1-4 p.m. at Gallant Woods Preserve (2151 Buttermilk Hill Road, Delaware 43015). Take a spooky walk along the wooded Acorn Trail in search of treats! You can also decorate pumpkins and enjoy a hayride.
