This evening program is designed to introduce young explorers to the wonders of the natural world after dark. Find out what makes owls such good hunters, why a firefly lights up and how your vision changes in the dark. Meet the owl ambassadors, listen for night sounds and keep an eye out for nocturnal creatures as we go on a kid-friendly hike through the meadow and orchard.
This program includes an easy hike over mostly flat ground. The trails are natural surface and hikers can expect a few spots with uneven terrain. Wear shoes suitable for hiking. Insect repellent is strongly recommended. This program is open to participants ages 4 and up.
Note: To protect the wildlife, we do not permit pets on the Sanctuary grounds.
