Are You Ready to Get Spooky?

Riverside Discovery Center is gearing up for another October filled with fun, both family-friendly and terrifying!  The Haunted Museum kicks off October 6th, and we need your help to make this our most scare-your-pants-off one yet!

Not into scary stuff?  No worries!  We’d love your help with our 29th annual Spooktacular, held once again at the zoo October 20th-25th!

To volunteer for either event (or both!), download the volunteer form, fill it out, and return it to us by October 1st!  Questions?  Email: or call the gift shop at 308-630-6236!
