SPARTANBURG, SC - Wofford College’s Goodall Environmental Studies Center College will host a family-focused educational event to educate attendees on the often-feared “creepy critters” of Halloween. “Spiders, Snakes and Bats (Oh My!)” will take place Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. outside at the Glendale Shoals behind the Goodall Center, located in Glendale, S.C., about six miles from campus.

Dr. Gerald Thurmond, chair of the Wofford Department of Sociology, will give a live snake demonstration. Halloween-specific food and fun crafts will be available for children, and all attendees will be able to view live spiders and animal skulls of the area. Goodall Center staff will be available to answer questions and provide information on the benefits of these animals for the surrounding ecosystem.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required by contacting Haley Briel, outreach coordinator at the center, at GoodallOutreach@wofford.edu.
