The Littoral Society is getting into the spirit of the season with Halloween-themed events at three locations.
The walk that started them all, the Sandy Hook Spooky Walk, returns on two dates this year: Thursday, October 20 and Thursday, Oct 27. Billed as Spooky Tales: Ghosts of Historic Fort Hancock, it will take participants on a moonlight walk through historic Fort Hancock, where ghosts have been known to linger. Cider and fall snacks will be provided after at Littoral Society headquarters in Building 18 of Officer's Row (GPS: 18 Hartshorne Drive, Highlands, NJ).
Cost is $10 for members and $20 for non-members. To ensure the safety and enjoyment of participants, registration is limited. Given the popularity of these walks, anyone who would like to join us should register promptly.

In South Jersey, the Littoral Society's Creepy Coast Walk is returning for the second year on Friday, October 28 at 7 p.m. This walk will bring participants through the marsh and out to Thompsons Beach, guided only by the light of the moon.
In addition to seeing roosting birds and other nocturnal critters, we’ll enjoy some light refreshments, and hear stories about the community that was washed away in a storm, as well as the work the Littoral Society is doing to protect this ecosystem.
Families, children, and people of all ages who love exploring nature after dark are welcome. Dress for the weather and to walk about 2 miles.
This year will feature a new addition, the Spooky Cemetery Bird Walk on Tuesday, October 25 at 4 p.m. Resident “bird nerd” and Director of Development, Membership and Outreach Lindsay McNamara will guide participants to look and listen for birds and owls as the sun goes down over the graveyard.
The walk will take place at All Saints' Memorial Episcopal, 202 Navesink Ave, Atlantic Highlands, NJ. Cost is $10 for members, $20 for nonmembers. Please dress for the weather, wear closed-toe shoes, bring water and binoculars if you have them.
