The annual Forest of Mystery fundraising event to benefit BEEC:
The year is 1970 and the small town of Cooperdalefield is spooked! Everyone in town knows the local Nighthill Woods have long been haunted by a mysterious phantom, even if no one’s ever actually seen it. The Sunshine Corporation thinks it’s time to tear the old woods down, and the local flower-power set are camping in the woods to protest.

Hour-long journeys begin every 15 minutes, 6:15 – 8:30 p.m.
The Forest of Mystery takes place each year in the Halloween Season with the aid of a group of talented community actors, dancers, and musicians, as well as inventive costume and set designers. This interactive theatrical performance takes place in scenes staged along BEEC’s beautiful candle-lit trails through forest and meadow. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of your journey so that you don’t miss your groups departure into the Forest of Mystery. You will travel together on a trail that is about 1/2 mile in length. Be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes and dress warmly for an October night. The performance is recommended for ages 6 and older.
