DCCC Zoo and Aquarium Science Club to Host ‘Haunted Trail’

Oct. 23, 2013 – The Zoo and Aquarium Science Club at Davidson County Community College is getting into the spirit of the Halloween season by hosting a “haunted trail” Oct. 25-26 on the Davidson Campus. The event will take place on the nature trail on DCCC Road, behind the Transportation Technology Building.

Trail tours will begin at 7 each night. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children ages 13 and under. Saturday night’s trail tours will be preceded by a “trunk or treat” event from 6-7:30. Student guides will lead trail tours, so guests will not be on the trail alone. Guests will be required to sign a liability waiver and wear closed-toe shoes.  

“This Halloween-themed event serves not only as a fun community activity, but it also serves as a fundraiser for the Zoo and Aquarium Science Club,” explains Jill Simpson, faculty member in the Zoo and Aquarium Science program at DCCC. “We’ll also be donating a portion of the funds raised to the Rowan Wildlife Adventures Nature Center at Dan Nicholas Park in Salisbury.”
