Woodland Spirits and Ghostly Gatherings at Fernbank

Not everyone likes a lot of gore and guts for Halloween (including me). That’s why I was so excited to hear about Fernbank Museum of Natural History new Halloween programming.

Fernbank invites guests to experience the darker mysteries of the forest as ghostly spirits begin to appear in the shadows. This new outdoor experience, Woodland Spirits, will be on view from Sept. 29 through Nov. 11.

Fernbank Museum Woodland Spirits

Drawing inspiration from the many enchanted forests in literature and movies, Woodland Spirits is filled with mystery, adventure and uncertainty. Guests will encounter dozens of ghostly visitors who inhabit the shadows and lurk in the far reaches of WildWoods and Fernbank Forest.

There’s a mystery to their presence but occasional fragments from abandoned gardens and vacant estates suggest that the spirits of those who once explored these woods never left. Guests are encouraged to stay aware, as the apparitions and ethereal spirits could lurk all around – up in the trees, deep in the vistas and even in plain sight.
