Night Hike

Event date and time
July 3, 2013 - 8:30 PM

Have you ever wondered what happens in the woods when the sun goes down and the creatures of the night come out? Join us for our first night hike where one of our naturalists will guide you through the darkness to shed light on some of the amazing animal and human adaptations to darkness. Darkness elevates the importance of our senses outside of sight. Explorers will focus on sensory perception as they become more comfortable in the darkness and enjoy an evening of learning and exploring the night.
