Celebrate Cultures in Nature – Samhain

Interpretive

Discover unique historical tales about the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks as we celebrate different cultures together! Each month, a different culture and celebration will be highlighted, usually with the program presented in multiple languages which will allow for everyone to fully enjoy the beauty of the land.

This month we will focus we will focus on the Celtic celebration of Samhain. An old Irish festival to celebrate the summer’s end, people would gather together to feast and harvest the season’s crops. As more commonly associated with modern Halloween, Samhain was considered a time when the veil between the living and the dead was the thinnest, thus the need to wear disguises to confuse the spirits. We will explore how animals have their own guises through camouflage as we explore Fremont Canyon.
